half moon defences crumbling on cliffs,
and books of invasions.
will be built of bones.
From the book, 'Castles of Bones', by Patrick Egan (Cardiff, Woodville Press, 2000).
Patrick Egan, from Westmeath, spent many years in Cardiff. A fluent Irish speaker, he was one of the founders of ‘Comhluadar Caerdydd’, the Cardiff Irish Language Group which launched the Wales Famine Forum. He now lives in Ireland.
