This first collection of poems began life as juvenile verses in Clongowes, continued in the lost musings of a hyperkinetic youth, and captures almost 20 years of peripatetic thoughts and feelings. It was inspired by W B Yeats line 'Look up in the Sun's eye', the foundation stone inscription of the new Lyric Theatre which has survived its recent re-incarnation. Though life has singed and scarred this book is a small affirmation of the richness of that journey. Kieran Darragh O'Malley was born in Belfast, and educated at Clongowes Wood College and University College Dublin. He is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who trained in Canada and USA. In 2006 he returned to Ireland, and now works at Our Lady's Children's Hospital Crumlin and Charlemont Clinic, Dublin. His parents Mary and Pearse founded the Lyric Players Theatre in Belfast in 1951, which for the first 17 years was a 50 seat theatre at the back of his rambling Victorian family home in 11 Derryvolgie Avenue. Thus, his brothers Donal, Conor and himself grew up in a world of Yeats, Synge and Shakespeare. He has followed that course as well, directing over 60 shows in North America. He founded the Wild Geese Returned in 2011, doing 3 shows at Bewleys Cafe Theatre, Dublin. He married Siobhan in 2008 , and between them they have 7 adult children living in Ireland, UK, Canada, USA and Australia! Siobhan O'Malley was born in Belfast, and has a degree in Art from the Ulster College of Art and Design in Belfast. She had her 1st exhibition in Galway in 2005, and recently has been painting Puffins which have sold in Rathlin Island. She previously did illustrations for a book called 'Garden Plans' in London in 1974 .She is related to internationally renowned artist and sculptor the late Paddy Marrinan RHA from Belfast.
