Mayo based poet Gerard Reidy’s debut collection of poems, published in 1998.

“Ger Reidy’s poetry is inspired by the untamed landscape of Mayo, his lyrics are peppered with hard-hitting musings on the perennial problems that have bedevilled life on the fringe.” — The Irish Times

“There is a quietness, a poetic reserve, at the heart of this book that draws you slowly but assuredly into a world of gentle asides… The images are fresh and the emotions uncompromisingly honest. Buy the book. It’s a wise move.” — Dermot Healy, Cyphers

About The Author


Gerard Reidy was born near Westport in Co. Mayo in 1958, qualified as a Civil Engineer in 1979 and started writing poetry in 1980. His first collection of poems, Pictures from a Reservation, appeared in 1998, and received widespread praise for its compelling voice and authentic evocation of the west of Ireland. His second collection, Drifting Under the Moon, appeared just over a decade later, since when he has published a third collection with Arlen House.
