Show Notes Chapter Markers

On today's show we talk to two poets who have published new collections: Eleanor Hooker, whose Of Ochre and Ash is published by Dedalus Press, and Amanda Bell whose Riptide is available from Doire Press. Eleanor's Toaster Challenge choice is 'Snow Woman',  a poem by Breda Wall Ryan while Amanda chooses 'I Worried',  a poem by Mary Oliver.
And we mark the passing of two fine Irish poets, Máire Mhac an tSaoi and Brendan Kennelly.

Intro/outro music: Colm Mac Con Iomaire, ‘Thou Shalt Not Carry’ from The Hare’s Corner, 2008, with thanks to Colm for permission to use it.
