Rage Limerick Launch

The launch of Patrick Stack’s second collection of poetry entitled “rage” took place at Nelly’s Corner Café on Sunday 11 June 2017 last. It was well-attended with a good smattering of poets from near and far in evidence, including poet and Beckett scholar Arthur Broomfield, novelist and poet Frank Golden who launched the collection with an excellent introduction to the book, poet and Revival Press editor Dominic Taylor who gave a rousing speech on the importance of the small press to writers, Limerick poet Edward O’Dwyer, poet and Stanza stalwart Caleb Brennan, Clare poet Mary Ellen Fean, and poet and Short Story writer Fred Johnston to mention a few.
The author read the opening poem – “Guí chun Lugh” – and its English translation, as well as the long poem “The Day the Revolution Came” which is the backbone of the collection to great appreciation, and some trepidation in certain quarters.
