Quick overview Author Jan Brierton (based in Artane in Dublin), fashion stylist by trade, began writing out of frustration at her work drying up, and the need to juggle being a home-school teacher, playground chaperone, cook, cleaner and everything else, and the desire to be back with the people she loved. She ended up writing a poem the book takes its name from, which was championed by her friend Roisín Ingle in the Irish Times and went ‘viral’.
€9.95

Dubliner Jan Brierton wrote her first poem in January 2021.

Frustrated with daily walks to parks, and longing for contact with beloved friends, Jan’s internal dialogue leaked out onto a page one night. ‘I think I wrote a poem’ she told her husband. ’Are you ok?’ he asked.

That poem ‘What day is it, who gives a f**k’ went viral and caught the imagination of lockdown-exhausted women and men all over the world.
Roisin Ingle at The Irish Times, one of Jan’s trusted few, received the poem in a late-night WhatsApp message. Roisin went on to share the poem on her Twitter page, The Irish Times Women’s Podcast and an asterisked version of the poem in The Irish Times.

The poem has been shared extensively through WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, continuing to resonate with so many, all over the world. Jan’s lyrical writings offer a fresh perspective on modern life, written with humour, heart and honesty.

Know Your Place : An Exploration of the Place Names of Ireland

O'Dochartaigh, Seoirse

Know Your Place: An Exploration of the Place Names of Ireland is aimed not at the academic but at the general readership. It is exactly what it says on the tin, an exploration, and not an all-embracing compendium. The author has selected a group of place names from each of the 32 counties – about 80 from each. It’s a very personal selection. For each, he discusses the anglicized name, the original Irish name and the meaning of the name. Alongside this are a smaller handful that required some further explanation. At the beginning of each county section, he also provides a paragraph or two on the formation of that county and how it came to be named.
