Angela Bourke, Poetry Ireland - Spring 2002
Gréagóir Ó Dúill's selection spans a youthful lifetime - 1965-2001 - drawing on his eight collections previously published by Coiscéim since 1981, and adding two poems previously unpublished. It is preceded by a thoughtful essay in which Ó Dúill traces his life in poetry and meditates on the influence of his Doyle and Dempsey forbears and his parents' migration north of the border when he was a child. Like the essay the poems are restrained, but confident, contemporary and precise, cerebral but tender.
