Poolbeg Book of Irish Poetry For Children
Is the only book of exclusively Irish poetry for children readily available in the UK. It is in three sections, ANCIENT POETRY, POETRY FROM THE GREAT POETS OF THE PAST, PRESENT DAY POETS.
In my introduction I pose the question, has there been any Irish poetry written directly for children and/or is there poetry which might be deemed - at second best - suitable for children. There are some wonderful poems for children in the canon of English poetry, I just wanted to find out if the same could be true of Irish poetry or not. The answer is YES! Buy it and see!
