West Cork in the spotlight

John Riordans first collection of poems, ‘After the Storm‘, reflects on “his love of nature, the people and landscape of West Cork and the challenges of making the transition from city to country living”. Did you know that John Riordan has been a resident of Glandore since his move from Dublin in 2008?

We recommend another poet, Michael McCarthy, who grew up on a farm in West Cork, Ireland. His first poetry collection, Bird’s Nests and Other Poems won the Patrick Kavanagh Award. His children’s books have been translated into seventeen languages. According to Jonathan Tulloch the poems in the book are “at once tender, yet uncompromisingly tough. As stark as bad news, as forgiving as the healing process itself. Unflinching, but with small victories, hope where it ought not to be.”
