A collection of his best poetry taken from Ó Leocháin's nine poetry books as well as a handful of new poems. A poet who has been quietly beavering away since the 1960s, Ó Leocháin has produced a fine body of work which is worthy of serious attention. Described by the poet Máire Mhac an tSaoi as ‘file d'fhilí móra na Gaeilge.'
