Riposte Spring 2012

I have a poem called The Lazy Harvester in the Spring issue of Riposte.  Riposte is Ireland's longest running poetry broadsheet.  Until further notice it will be published quarterly instead of monthly.  30 poems will be published in each issue.  Included in this issue are Eamon Lynskey, Ita Kenny, Carmel Rooney, Mary Guckian, Kieran Furey,Nora Hart and Margret Boles.  It's something of a thrill to see Austin Clarke's The Lost Heifer also included.  It's one of my favourite poems.  Remember Soundings!?

An annual subscription to Riposte costs 15 euro.  Riposte can be contacted by email or by post:

  1. Orla, this is going a bit far isn't it - Census 3, Crannog and now Riposte more or less in one week! Well done.

  2. Lol thanks Michael. No doubt there'll be a drought coming at some stage.

  3. I'll pray for more rain for you! Congratulations.
