In The Stone Garden, Diane Fahey offers a vibrant engagement with key features of County Clare’s natural environment. Starting in a cottage in the north-east, with a long view of the coast, the poet journeys into the further reaches – Lough Derg, Dromore Wood, and the Burren region with its stony but uncannily fertile landscapes, cliffs and shores.
The Stone Garden is a resonant, meditative collection of poems presenting intimate glimpses of, and larger perspectives on, the splendours of Clare.
Diane Fahey is the author of ten poetry collections and a verse novel, The Mystery of Rosa Morland. The Wing Collection: New & Selected Poems was shortlisted for the 2012 John Bray Poetry Award; Sea Wall and River Light was a winner of the Judith Wright Poetry Award.
