The Radio Was Gospel
Published by Salmon Poetry
The Radio was Gospel was born, like its author, amid the sights and sounds, quirks and traditions of County Galway. We visit places as close to home as the local church, Salthill and the Aran Islands, and as far afield as Spain, Venice and San Francisco, all the time moving between savage wit and startling beauty, and the contrast between the way things are and the way they should be.
