Edited by the able pair of Nessa O’Mahoney and Jane Clarke, this featured Derek’s poem ‘Out for a Walk’ and Carlow College, St Patrick’s student, Clifton Redmond’s poem ‘The Ferret’. Derek read both poems at the London launch of The North. This event was hosted by the Irish Literary Society, based in London and over a century old (1892), this famous society was founded by W.B.
