Revival Press and the White House Poets to launch Tim Cunningham's new book of poems in October.

Limerick-born Tim Cunningham’s third poetry collection, ‘Kyrie’, is firmly rooted in nineteen fifties’ Ireland – De Valera’s Ireland – a place and time, apparently so distant now, when religion permeated almost every aspect of life. And it is the lives that are celebrated here, with their pieties, loves, frustrations and hopes, the perennial human condition woven into the sacraments and liturgies of the everyday. Not quite the Limerick of Angela's Ashes but nevertheless Tim Cunningham has continued on where Frank Mc Court left off but this time in poetry and verse.

These poems should be enjoyed not only by regular poetry readers but by anybody interested in the history and culture of a country in an era of profound and unrelenting change.
