The Bogman’s Cannon


Delighted and honored to have a poem from my book Little Witness published on Irish poet Dave Lordan‘s website, the Bogman’s Cannon.

“Inheritance” is an eight-part poem about the 1943 Poor Clare orphanage fire in Cavan in which 35 children and one old woman perished.

Dave has truly been shaking things up in the Irish poetry scene for years now – a brilliant and exciting performer of his own work, as you will see from his YouTube video.

Lost Tribe of The Wicklow Mountains, Dave’s third collection is available from Salmon Poetry, web retailers, and from all good bookshops.
