Another Doghouse Poetry Launch

Outward and Return, the new poetry collection by Greagoir O'Duill (above) was launched by Jack Harte, writer, at the Irish Writers Centre, Dublin on Wednesday evening. Jack Harte (below), a Sligo native, praised the collection highly and noted that the author was a bilingual poet, writing with equal facility in Irish and English without any great fuss or drama.

Greagoir read from the collection. His poems range from Dublin to Donegal and further afield to Chicago, Venice and Monaco. He read his wonderfully titled A Ford Anglia Dumped on a High Bog Road after Derek Mahon, influenced he said, by Mahon's disused shed in Wexford poem.

And on Friday 22 June Doghouse Books invite you to the launch of Slow Mysteries by Monica Corish to be launched by Brian Leyden, author. The venue is the Yeats Building, Sligo and the time 7.30pm. Admission: free. All are welcome.

This is one I am very sorry to miss. I was in the Yeats Building on Yeats Day this year and Brian Leyden read at the official launch in Drumcliff.
