"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Country facing meltdown, or rather, the opposite

Snow in Ireland

There’s a blanket of snow down in Ballinasloe
with a valance of ice underneath.
There’s a duvet of hail now smothering Kinsale
and a flat sheet of sleet up in Meath.

The snow’s thundered down on Donegal town
and covered it like a bedspread.
There’s a white drifting mattress o’er Ballymacatras –
I think that I’m going back to bed.

Irish Indo report here
It actually seems worse than the terrible events of February 2009


  1. Two words. Bedding Brilliant.

  2. I thought Indian names in Canada were odd! Ballymacatras? Wow.

    Excellent work (as ever).
