The Stony Thursday Book


Mary O’Donell is the editor of the 40th Anniversary Edition of The Stony Thursday Book, the poetry journal founded by John Liddy and Jim Burke . I’m very happy to have a poem included in this edition which was launched recently in Limerick city. There is a staggering amount of good poems here. I particularly enjoyed hearing work by Macdara Woods, Maggie Breen, Seán Ó Coistealbha and Úna Ní Cheallaigh at the launch.

My own poem is called ‘Dán do Thadhg’ (translated by Gabriel Rosenstock as ‘Poem for Tadhg’), written for my astonishingly gorgeous nephew. Can’t resist including a pic of the rogue here at Halloween…
