The Poems of Padraig Daly
Padraig Daly is an Augustinian priest in the Dublin parish of Ballyhoden. He’s published several poetry collections and translations from poets writing in Irish and the Italian poet Edoardo Sanguineti.
In his own poetry, and especially The Last Dreamers: New and Selected Poems, the reader finds Daly focused on faith and how it is expressed, in the importance of daily life (be it in Ireland or Italy), in rituals, in loving and comforting, and in prayer.
