An absolute delight to chat to Peter Sirr and Enda Wyley on their amazing podcast Books for Breakfast. I chatted about my new collection Of Ochre And Ash (Dedalus Press), and choose to talk about Breda Wall Ryan's poem 'The Snow Woman' for their Toaster Challenge. Fabulous to feature on this episode alongside my friend, the fabulous poet Amanda Bell, and of course too to hear Enda and Peter open the programme with a tribute to to Máire Mhac an tSaoi and Brendan Kennelly.
