One Crimson Thread

On 29 September 2015, Micheal O’Siadhail launched his latest book of poems ‘One Crimson Thread’ in the RHA Gallery, Dublin. The launch included a display of paintings of the author by the artist Mick O’Dea PRHA. This short video shows some of those paintings, and includes one poem read by the author. It gives a flavour of the occasion in the RHA Gallery. Video by: Ruaidhrí Nolan MacGiobúin

This launch was the start of a tour of the UK and Scotland, followed by the USA. Micheal was interviewed on RTÉ Radio One’s ‘Sunday With Miriam’ on 4 October, and you may listen to a podcast of that powerful half-hour interview on the RTÉ website ( ).
