(An Irish-language title) This collection is a collaboration between two different artists working in two different mediums. Kathleen Furey's images of loss and separation provide a counterpoint to Louis de Paor's poems which struggle constantly towards light and redemption. The man who speaks to us in the poems is on the brink of middle age. Behind him stand those who have gone before, ushering him on his way and shortening the road ahead. When he looks at those who are still young and innocent he finds it strange that they do not see the shadows that gather around them. Yet, the hope that creeps through the cracks in his heart cannot be stifled.
