Boyne Berries 1916 - launched 31st March 2016

It was with great pleasure that I read my poem 'Shades' at the launch of the Boyne Berries Spring 2016 literary journal - Boyne Berries 19, a special issue commemorating the centenary of the 1916 Rising.

This is the first of my poems to be published in print and as a result this event has a special significance for me.

Thanks to Orla Fay and all at the Boyne Berries. We had a wonderful night at the launch with a most interesting introduction by Tom French reading one of his own poems and giving an insight into the writing within the journal being launched. This was followed by readings of a good proportion of the published works.

This journal may be purchased online at or through your local library.
