‘Our Lady of Cúm a’ Chiste’

Words Lightly Spoken


Paddy Bushe reads his poem Our Lady of Cúm a’ Chiste in this episode of Words Lightly Spoken.

Inspired by his two-year-old grandson, Paddy Bushe recalls a bygone Ireland, full of prayer flags, ritual and Marian Year statues. The poem is from his collection On a Turning Wing, published by Dedalus Press.

Words Lightly Spoken, a podcast about poetry from Ireland, is a Rockfinch production, funded by the Arts Council of Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
