Nature of event: The Launch of ‘Peacekeeper’ by Michael J. Whelan
Where: Tallaght Library, Dublin
When: Wednesday 13th April, 6:30 pm
The poems were inspired by my tours of duty as a United Nations Peacekeeper with the Irish Defence Forces in South Lebanon and Kosovo. The poems are also about the many Irish soldiers who served in those countries over the years and will be the first collection of its kind in Ireland to do so. A big THANK YOU to Doire Press for believing in the poems.
‘the first of its kind published in Ireland by an Irish soldier since the war poets of WWII and the first relating to the Irish Defence Forces serving abroad on peace support operations.’ (Ireland’s Military Story)
