Dennis O’Driscoll, R.I.P.

1224328186097_1Very sorry to hear that Dennis O’Driscoll has left us, and at the young age of 58. His work  always appealed to me,  because of its mixture of humour  and seriousness. His regular contributions  in the Poetry Ireland Review of ‘Pickings and Choosings’ , in which he listed out various ‘definitions’ of poetry, was always something I looked forward to reading. His ‘Stepping Stones’ book of interviews with Seamus Heaney is a fine examination of Heaney’s work and life and is eminently readable. Ar a dheis De go raibh a anam.
