Book Launch: ‘News from Inside’ by Greg Carey


Revival Press, the poetry imprint of the Limerick Writers’ Centre, are delighted to announce the upcoming release of ‘News from Inside’, a debut collection of poems by poet and philosopher Greg Carey. The collection will be launched by acclaimed poet Ron Carey, the brother of Greg.

The launch takes place at The People’s Museum of Limerick, 2 Pery Sq., Limerick Fri 15th Sept. 2023 7.30pm. All are welcome to attend.

About the collection Greg says “Growing up in a time preceding the widespread use of the internet and mobile phones, a standard greeting you might hear on the street was “what’s the news?”.  My book is an imagined response to that question and attempts in its broad sweep across my life to give an insight into how my experiences shaped my inner landscape, as it is from this landscape that my personal ‘news’ is written. The book weaves together a tapestry of early recollections, landscapes that have inspired me and artists who have had a significant effect on my life.”

Ron Carey describes the poems as “Caring, insightful and brilliant, encompassing everything from Nature to the human condition. Though Greg has a natural contemplative and philosophical outlook, he is a poet first – and a terrific poet at that.  The wonderful poems from “News from Inside” will knock your socks off!  ”
