PRESENTED BY JOANNE COLLINS

PRODUCED BY JOHN HOUGH & JOANNE COLLINS

Paul Casey’s poetry has been performed and published in many countries worldwide. His most recent collection, Virtual Tides, was published by Salmon Poetry in 2016. This followed home more or less (Salmon, 2012) and his debut chapbook It’s Not all Bad (Heaventree Press, 2009). In August 2017 he was commissioned to write in response to a soundscape for RTE radio and his poems were translated into Galician by Daniel Salgado and published as a chapbook, Poemas (Malinche Press, June 2017). He edits the annual Unfinished Book of Poetry (transition year writing) and is the founder/director of the Ó Bhéal reading series in Cork, at www.obheal.ie.

“Pure poetry. Unstoppable poetry. Poetry that’s necessary.” – Mary O’Donnell

“With his mixture of humour, robust language and neurasthenic wandering, he is a serious talent; a man to demand attention.” – Thomas McCarthy

“… a truly international poet” – Ian Duhig

“These poems sensitise the reader to the permeable boundaries around all places …” – Leanne O’Sullivan

“a verbal weave of magical sound. It does what the best of poetry always does. it begins in delight, stays in delight and lands in delight” - Alan Titley

“… an urgent new voice in Irish poetry, one fiercely original in all senses of the word” – Billy Ramsell
