Issue: 92 - Flames of History

Hayden Murphy, editor of our first Irish issue (1977), returns to present a new authoritative glimpse of the best Irish literature today. Using Mary Robinson’s fruitful Presidency of Ireland as starting point, Hayden selects from both sides of the border. Prefaced by Daniel Mulhall, Irish Consul to Scotland, here is a flavourful mix of Irish writing – familiar names like Seamus Heaney, Brendan Kennelly and Eavan Boland, but also less familiar – Peter Fallon, Eva Bourke, Rosemarie Rowley, Gabriel Fitzmaurice and Rody Gorman – work in Irish Gaelic, English and Scottish Gaelic. Illustrations by renowned artist John Behan RHA. Hayden Murphy reviews new Irish Poetry, Fiction and Drama in his own witty style and the Edinburgh International Fringe and Book Festivals. New fiction by Bernard MacLaverty, Eleanor Thomson and Jim MacLaughlin. 104 pp, 1998, ISBN-10: 0-906772-88-5 / ISBN-13: 978-0-906772-88-1 £5.00
