Irish Times praises Róisín Tierney


We were pleased that the Irish Times reviewer, Sean Hewitt, liked Roisin Tierney’s pamphlet Mock-Orange calling the poems “skilful and atmospheric”.  He continued: “These unsettling dark lyrics have a wonderful verbal energy; a mythic imagination.”  

Copies of the pamphlet are still available here and you can also read two new poems of Roisin in the latest issue of Dark Horse magazine.


You can see Róisín reading from the pamphlet on our You Tube channel.
