It was such an honour to be invited to read my poems in Paris this month.

My thanks to the Irish Embassy in Paris, to the Department of Foreign Affairs, and to the Centre Culturel Irlandais for their hospitality. A special thanks to all those who gave me such a warm welcome: to Espace Andrée Chedid, to Peter O’Connor, and to the audience who were so attentive, and so appreciative of my work. Mes plus sincères remerciements à tous!
