Carr has dedicated his new collection to late friend and former Horslips band member Johnny Fean.
Irish musician and writer Eamon Carr is set to release a new poetry collection, 'Foundation Song’. The launch is scheduled for Thursday, July 20 at 6pm in Ruby's Cocktail Bar, Drury Street, in Dublin.
The collection, published by Revival Press, explores themes of displacement, loss, and isolation, with an intertwined sense of hope.
Carr has been noted for his unique take on various themes, incorporating elements of Irish mythology, the work of Ovid and Basho, and oral traditions into his writings.
Dr. Martina Devlin has commented on Carr's work, stating, ‘His work contains the unexpected, the lyrical, the shocking – a combination that’s the mark of a poet.’ The collection will also include an introduction written by poet John Liddy.
As a special offer, all pre-orders of the book will be signed by Carr.
On the way from Revival Press, the poetry imprint of the Limerick Writers' Centre... I'm excited and delighted. Foundation Song is dedicated to my departed friend and songwriting pal Johnny Fean. We can but attempt to rock on 🙏https://t.co/1iN9p9DZjs pic.twitter.com/Z2e3dAdWLw
