This is the literary legacy of Seán Ó Ríordáin, who ‘shocked' and ‘Ríordáinized' contemporary Irish poetry and changed it from top to bottom.
This book gathers all of the poems ever published by Seán Ó Ríordáin together under one cover for the first time: the three collections published during his lifetime, Eireaball Spideoige (1952), Brosna (1964), and Línte Liombó (1971), as well as the work published after his passing, Tar Éis mo Bháis (1978).
Seán Ó Ríordáin, was one of the great poets of the twentieth century. He was born in Ballyvourney in the Muskerry Gaeltacht on the 3rd of December, 1916 and it was there that he spent the early days of his youth. Later, he moved to Cork to attend school in the city and he lived in the city for most of the rest of his life. He worked as a journalist and wrote regular columns for the Irish Times. He died in 1977.
