This new edition of the Cork Literary Review, one of the few literary publications still in print, is dedicated to the Gathering, the celebration of the Irish diaspora around the world. Featuring an introduction by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, this anthology Presents the brightest and best of contemporary Irish writers and poets both at home and abroad. It is a look at contemporary Ireland from as many angles as possible; a celebration of where we are and where we hope to be in the future. The visionary, optimistic nature of Art is what this book is about. Featuring the likes of renowned writers like James A Sharkey, Philip McDonagh, Dennis O’ Driscoll, Thomas Keneally, Maurice Harmon, Desmond O ‘Grady, Martina Evans, Bernard O’Donoghue, Thomas McCarthy, Gerry Murphy, Tomás Ó Canainn, Gerard Smyth and Joe Woods. The emphasis in this year’s Cork Literary Review is the social aspect of the Diaspora, that conviviality and comradeship for which Ireland is justly famous.
