A Place Apart

Beville, Kieran
Memory is the leitmotif of the collection, sparked by the smell of orange peel with that Kavanagh-like ending of ‘sixty Christmases of age’, by the sight of ‘frozen clothes/still hanging on the garden line’, in the ‘thud on the kitchen window’ or Joe Malone’s bohemian pub of the 70s.

Archeology of the Heart

Beville, Kieran
Like traditional, honeyed Irish soda bread or dark chocolate truffles suffused with plenty of good Irish whiskey, this charismatic book of poetry you hold in your hands, by Kieran Beville, an esteemed Irish poet, and the reading of the poems inside, is a satisfyingly nourishing, sensual experience to savour, over and over again. Its attention to craft, passion for language, and with a profound understanding of the depths of the roots of memory, is an astounding work of poetry.

Songs for Older Life

Carey, Ron
In this new poetry collection, Songs for Older Life, Ron Carey has undertaken to celebrate some creative individuals who blossomed in the afternoons, twilights and late evenings of their lives. Some of these are very famous, others are not so well known. But within these pages you will discover in their stories an endless source of encouragement and want to find out more about them.

Drawing on Memory (Cavan Poet)

Conaty, Tom
This is a collection that probes memory and looks at how we use it to construct identity, making our mark as we interact with the human and the natural world.


Cunningham, Tim
Tim Cunningham’s latest collection of poems, Peristeria, is first and foremost a celebration of life. The poems are wonderful affirmations – in considerations of nature, human nature, faith, place, music, art, history, mortality and loss – of how it must be cherished. An appreciation for music is to be found throughout, and Cunningham is always dutiful in his particular role, demonstrating language’s capacity for music.


Donnellan, Anne
Anne Donnellan grew up in the countryside outside Ennis, County Clare. She has lived and worked in Galway for over forty years. Anne's earliest background was in primary teaching. Her post graduate studies in Law and International Human Rights led her to lifelong advocacy works in solidarity and justice issues ranging from the progression of age friendly local policy to serving on election observation missions in the Balkans.
