mike absalom in conversation

Bridie Sheeran, Mike Absalom, Sandra Donnellan

A very special interview with Irish poet, painter and printmaker Mike Absalom.

Before social distancing was introduced, Bridie Sheeran and Sandra Donnellan went to Kilkelly to meet Mike at his remarkable home and studio.

Mike studied all over the world before becoming a singer-songwriter during the 1960s and 70s, and also worked internationally as a harpist, fiddler, children’s entertainer and puppeteer. In September 2012 his collection “Even the Grass Has a Hangover” was shortlisted for the Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Prize.
