RTÉ Radio 1 Arena


I read a poem for Arena, RTÉ Radio One’s arts programme, on Friday. It’s dedicated to Jean McConville and the children of the Mother and Baby Home in Tuam. I read a prose translation in English that I did myself for the broadcast. You can listen to it here

Around this time last year there was a long article in the New Yorker about Jean McConville and her family entitled ‘Where the Bodies are Buried.’ Harrowing stuff.
