Bail O Dhia oraibh go leir
My name is Chris Mahon and I am an Irishman from County Carlow in the Province of Leinster. I hope you you won’t mind me making the readership aware of a book of poetry I have written called “Reflections of a Wandering Celt” which is available on Amazon.com. The book is a compilation of personal experiences over many years and is divided up into Sections called Romance, Nature, Thoughts of Erin,
Reflections, Humour and Africa. Unusually, I have commented at the beginning of each poem why I wrote it. The book has received favourable reviews from a number of people including Professor Brendan Kenneally, Poet, and John O’Donoghue, Poet, Author and Barrister. I have also put up two videos on Youtube in which I recite a number of the poems. These can be accessed by typing in ‘An Irishman’s view of real Poetry’ in the Youtube search box. I hope you will visit these and perhaps leave a comment.
I would also be delighted if anyone knew an Irish poet who might be interested in collaborating with me in translating some of the poems in to Gaelic.
