Brightening Over Dillon's by Liam Nevin with its "memories of days gone by". 1960s semi-rural Ireland and a schoolboy’s view of life growing up there. Growing up in the sixties wasn’t always easy, with overcrowded houses lacking in running water, central heating and so on. School could be quite difficult too, with corporal punishment a major issue. But life was happy and there was little pressure on children to have this, that and the other.
The Unity Project by Brian Corvin. This second collection of poetry and verse (including haiku) from the Dublin-based author looks at "where we have come from, what we need to do to help us fulfil our evolutionary potential and how the process will affect us." The long anchor poem, which gives the book its title, was inspired by Abdul Baha (1844 - 1921) who, over 150 years ago, observed that the world is one country and mankind are its citizens.
Melodies at Eventide by Rex Lee. A memoir about overcoming disability but also about so much more. The story is told by one who never allowed the circumstances of his birth to limit his outlook on life or narrow his horizons. Motivated and guided by a philosophy of mental and physical compensation, he seized every opportunity that was offered to lead an active, fulfilling and independent life, all the while being part of a movement to change society for the better.
Centenary in Reflection. The SiarScéal anthology for 2016 and published in the centenary year of the Easter Rising, the rebellion that heralded a nation's re-birth. Offering a momentous snapshot of global and local history and culture, this anthology is no mere exercise in nostalgia. Rather, it creates a space to review times past, voiced (not uncritically) by writers and students locally and internationally.
