Patrick H. Sheerin

€10.00 EUR

Patrick H. Sheerin was born in Dargoon, Co. Leitrim. He received his early education at Dargoon National School and Drumkeerin Vocational School.

In the late fifties he emigrated to England and worked at sundry jobs. He attended night school classes in London and then went on to London University where he was awarded a B.A. degree in modern languages. A year of P.G.C.E. at Cardiff was followed by a period teaching French in southern England.

In Franco's last years he emigrated to Spain, a country to which he had always been attracted. 'After Franco's death I liked it even better. I married there, settled down, had a family and started work in the University of Valladolid, where I did a Ph.D'.

Patrick Sheerin is still working in Vallodolid University where he teaches English Language and Irish Literature.

Four of the poems in this collection, 'The Kings', 'A Hundred Years of Solitude', 'The Yankee' and 'Sonny' appeared in the Irish Press 'New Irish Writers' page.
