MY Limerick Town

0 out of 5


My Limerick Town (White House Press, 2009) is a collection of Desmond O’Grady’s poems many of which have an association with Limerick, his native city. Some of the poems have been revised by O’Grady prior to publication. Readers are therefore advised that the changes to text and titles are made with the specific instruction of the poet. The collection also contains excerpts from interviews given by O’Grady throughout his long life as a poet. This is a limited edition book and bound to be a collectors item. It is edited by Barney Sheehan.
