' A generous and humbling collection that dances lightly between languages. Often angry and vital, Bolger sharpens her words and brings us on a journey that embraces both the sensuality and discomfort of being human. Shifting between worlds and perspectives, this is a raw exploration of what it means to be alive in a world that is as devastating as it is beautiful.' — Alvy Carragher

Sending Positive Vibes
As a Capuchin priest working in Dublin’s inner-city Fr Brian Shortall has seen both the good and the bad side of humanity. Always one to remain hopeful and spread the good news, in this collection of homilies, blogs, talks and stories he draws on his own experience in parish ministry to bring a positive message to the reader.

Following on from the great success of his first book Tired of All the Bad News. Fr Bryan gives us a superb insight into the lessons he has learned from his parishioners as he chronicles the highlights of parish life, including a visit from Pope Francis to the Capuchin Day Centre for the homeless last year. In this little book, you will find hope, inspiration and an insight into the simple Capuchin Franciscan way of life so famously represented by St Padre Pio.

Hallelujah: Memories of a Singing Priest
Fr Ray Kelly, ‘the singing priest’, became a worldwide internet sensation when a video of him singing Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ at a wedding in 2014 went viral.

In 2018 he auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent, singing ‘Everybody Hurts’ by R.E.M., and he made it to the semi-finals of the show.

This is his memoir, describing his fascinating journey from parish priest to fame, and following his experience of sharing his exceptional talent with the world. Charting his childhood in Tyrrellspass, his calling to the seminary and his work as a priest, the book culminates in Fr Kelly being catapulted into the limelight because of his extraordinary talent.

Mother House
Poems in The Mother House range from the broad, surprising narrative swerve of ‘She Was at the Haymaking’ and the mysterious wound in ‘A Journey’ to the exact detail of ‘the vessels tugging at their tether’ and the lighthouse keeper ‘watching the great revolving spokes / hitting the piled castles of spray’. Stories of historical figures (including the author’s relations) are filtered through tellings. Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin’s meticulous, probing art is like no other. As she writes in ‘Resemblances’, ‘Like everything that I deal with now the room / has a double, a frill of light surrounding it.’ Our Price: : €18.50
