The latest issue of Poetry Ireland Review, the second edited by John F. Deane, is out now. Along with the usual mix of poems and articles it features a fascinating interview with the German-born, Irish-domiciled Eva Bourke. It’s a chat that made me eager to read Piano, her latest collection from Dedalus Press.
I’m happy to mention that this issue also features my poem ‘Jazz Weekend’. This sequence contains, among other things, a little tribute to my favourite restaurant, The Ivory Tower, which is located on Princes Street in Cork City.
