“John Walsh’s work is brave, vibrant and immensely accessible. At its best, the writing achieves a rare transparency. There are powerful poems here where we, seamlessly, get to see the world through his eyes and are greatly enriched by the experience.”
John Walsh was born in Derry. After living in Germany for sixteen years, he now lives and writes in Connemara. He has published two collections of poetry, Johnny tell Them (Guildhall Press, 2006) and Love’s Enterprise Zone (Doire Press, 2007).
