Poet launches CD
Check out a new CD by local poet Dermot McGarthy called Ancient Air.
It contains 30 poems, dealing with a wide range of issues affecting the human condition, such as emigration, isolation, pursuit of romance, death and re-birth of love, acceptance, and survival.
He has published three collections of written words to date, Standing Room Only (2004), Goldfish Logic (2006), and Building Work (2008), all now available through Drogheda Library.
This is Dermot's first venture into spoken word and he hopes the tone gets the message of his work across.
He likes to quote one of his artistic heroes, Brian Wilson, of the Beach Boys when he once said "God writes these songs, I just sing 'em"- ditto for the poet in question.
"Ancient Air" is currently available for purchase in CD World at the Town Centre, priced at €13.
