Walking on Water by Maire Liberace
Paperback, 84 Pages
This is a collection of poems celebrating Ireland, especially North Antrim. Maire has grown up with a love and regard for its history, its legends, literature and poetry. All have been embedded in the marrow of her bones and this is reflected in a deep love for the country she grew up in. And it is of these places and its people that she mainly writes. Especially Ballycastle and its environs. The people, the landscapes and, in particular, the sea always have been and still are the sources of her inspiration. Among these, Murlough Bay remains the place of her dreams and fondest memories. Many of her poems are imbued with a deep and original reflectiveness which seems to emerge from the landscape that inspired them.
