Event 56

Patrick Deeley

 – Presbyterian Church

Michael Harding and Donal Ryan have raved about poet Patrick Deeley’s memoir The Hurley Maker’s Son, the story of a rural childhood in Galway, describing it as ‘beautifully written’ and as ‘a glorious book, a gorgeous tumble of memories’. Deeley’s prose catches the rhythms and the struggles of a way of life now passed. Author of six highly-praised and award-winning poetry collections, he brings a poet’s sensibility to his narrative of family, love, loss and the march of time. Deeley will read from his book.
