Ballynahinch Postcards poems by Peter Fallon

60 pp  limited signed edition hardback and paperback

Peter Fallon lives with his family in Loughcrew in County Meath in the midlands of Ireland. At the age of eighteen he founded The Gallery Press which is widely regarded as Ireland’s pre-eminent literary pubishing house.

He has been Writer Fellow at Trinity College, Dublin, his alma mater, and poet-in-residence at Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts. In 2000 he was inaugural Heimbold Professor of Irish Studies at Villanova University. He is a member of Aosdána, the Irish “academy” of artists who have made “an outstanding contribution to the arts in Ireland”.

Peter Fallon’s collections of poems include News of the World: Selected and New Poems (1998) and The Company of Horses (September

2007). The Georgics of Virgil (October 2004), a Poetry Book Society Recommended Translation, has been reissued by Oxford University Press in its World’s Classics Series.

For years he has returned to Ballynahinch where each winter he enjoys his “retreat” in a house adjacent to the Castle, during which these poems emerged.

The book is published in a limited, signed edition of 185 numbered hardback copies and 1000 paperback copies. It can only be obtained directly from Ballynahinch Castle.
