The Sharp and Gentle Side of an Irish Pen
Poems and Recitations

Declan Curneen

€10.00 EUR

The inspiration and vision of this humorous and insightful collection of poems and recitations undoubtedly flows from the Gaelic tradition of the seanachaí or storyteller.

Written in a natural lyrical style - ideal for reciting aloud - they will entertain, inform and on occasions move any gathering through the depth and honesty of the emotions expressed and themes explored.

Whilst drawing inspiration from life in his native Glenade in County Leitrim, the author's work is filled with keen observations and reflections on issues everyone encounters no matter what their background or where they live.

Introduced with a heartfelt tribute to Glenade and its heritage the work explores important personal themes such as love, drink, death, music and politics - all presented with great wit and wisdom.

Expressed in terms and images which are accessible to all, the writings are bound to strike a chord with anyone who is familiar with rural life in Ireland and bring a smile of recognition to faces young and old.
