Fiacha Fola is a sequence of poems which gives an account of the Hepatitis C scandal in Ireland. In this collection the poet has created the type of narrative thrust one expects to find only in a novel. Poem after poem the tragedy unfolds in the description of the everyday events of family life, love, birth and illness, slowly unveiling, without fanfare or self-pity, the brutal truth of a huge injustice visited upon the citizens of this country. Fiacha Fola is a deeply moving book of poetry that reminds us of our humanity and our vulnerability.
