Our House, Delirious by Margaret Galvin

0 out of 5


In this collection of poetry and prose, Margaret Galvin’s writing sparkles with humour, honesty  and compassion as she lifts the curtain on the past and gives centre stage to the relatives, neighbours and friends she observed as a child growing up in rural Tipperary.  The good people of Galvin’s native place will stay with you long after you put down the book – ordinary people made extraordinary as they stoically endured the shortcomings of life, shouldered their sorrows with resilience and grace, and, in many instances, had their lives transformed by joy.. – A.M. Cousins
