I'm delighted to have a poem included in the first issue of North West Words, a new online magazine from the team based in Letterkenny which organizes poetry readings, workshops etc.
The editorial team of Maureen Curran, Eamonn Bonner and Denise Blake have done a wonderful job and the online publication is very attractive with a mix of poetry, prose, interviews and images.
My poem is called Fish and Chips, written after a meal of same in a hotel in Liverpool some years ago. I wasn't there for a Liverpool football match (No way!) but a Bob Dylan concert.
