Cadence -
A Poetry Book from SAOL

Published in October 2022, this poetry book is a remarkable collection of poems from the women of SAOL along with our friends from the worlds of art, drama, poetry and song

With more than 100 poems, this book transports the reader into a world of hope, strength, endurance and resilience. Paula Meehan and Ray Hegarty curated this collection, drawing on poems written in SAOL over the last 27 years.  The poems written by SAOL's participants and staff are joined by poems from friends and supporters from all walks of life, including Colm Tobin, Theo Dorgan, Rachel Hegarty and Rita Ann Higgins to name but a few.

It is a wonderful book that will grace any bookshelf - particularly at Christmas!
