"Boyne Berries 5 Spring 20009" , edition, was successfully launched at the Castle Arch hotel in Trim Co. Meath on Thursday the 19th of March by novelist Pat Dunne. It includes contributations from authors in many parts of the world as well as those more closer to home.
A mixture of poetry and prose, many of the names here will be familiar. On a once through there are some striking poems, "Entebbe", by Olutayo K Osunsan, "Dawn at Dolmen" by John Noonan, followed by "The Heron", by Tommy Murray. The prose makes for an interesting mix, but be careful of what newspapers you read. Michael Farry poses the question "What is a poem?" or does he? while Brendan Carey Kinnane's "The Broadmeadow" is a must read.
