This is the first comprehensive critical anthology of modern poetry in Irish with English translations. It forms a sequel to Seán Ó Tuama and Thomas Kinsella’s pioneering anthology, An Duanaire 1600-1900 / Poems of the Dispossessed (1981), but features many more poems in covering the work of 26 poets from the past century.

Edited by Louis de Paor, Poems of Repossession / Leabhar na hAthghabhala is a varied selection of poetry from the revival period such as Pádraig Mac Piarais and Liam S. Gógan up to present day writers including Colm Breathnach and Micheál Ó Cuaig. This is an opportunity to discover and revel in the rich heritage and contemporary dynamism of Irish language.

The evening will feature readings and discussion from four of the writers, including Gearóid Mac Lochlainn and Áine Ní Ghlinn this is a treat for lovers of poetry in Irish or any tongue.

Call into an Ceathrú Póilí to get your copy of the book! 🙂
