Redshank is a contemporary story of a poet’s struggle with the isolation of his craft, while, at the same time, having to deal with some complicated familial issues. It is a humorous novel, interspersed with poetry and enriched with zany minor characters. But it is the main character, Cathal Ó hÚrdaill, young poet and teacher, who exudes the craziest humour of all. It is his method of coping.
