This week we have included an exclusive recording from the Poet Terry McDonagh, this is an opportunity to hear Terry reading a selection of his work and in some cases listen to his explanation of how the poem came about.  This is something we hope to do more of on Voices from Ireland, let you become an audience member in your own personal reading.   Also we will be adding more writers for you in the weeks to come here at and have set recording dates for a number of authors and songwriters.  So we can gaurantee that there will be lots of choice in the coming weeks.
