Boyne Berries 10

I just received my copy of Boyne Berries 10, and it's an absolutely beautifully produced edition, with poems, prose, photographs and original art work. My poem was a retelling of the myth of Oisin and Niamh, from Niamhs pov. And the art on the facing page by Elena Duff is stunning, here's a peek ...

Congratulations Niamh - looking forward to reading your poem and I have always loved the Niamh and Oisin myth. From her point of view - that's cool.
Elena Duff's art is something else. Marvellous and edgy.

And Peter Fallon mentioned a previous piece of yours in his introduction at the launch. But you weren't there and I was heartbroken.

its amazing, and after reading your short stories - I'd say you'll love her website and the art she has created there.

Congratulations! I'm glad you have a poem included. I'd love to read a whole book of your poems.

That picture is amazing. That's how I used to feel when I let my hair be curly and grow long.

Oh Niamh that book is beautiful. I will be purchasing it before the end of the day. I am soooo very anxious to read your poem. I love those Irish myths!!!! Will feature the book and your poem on my blog on Monday too.
