I begin much of my writing at Residencies in The Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Monaghan. I am ever inspired by the Irish landscape and by poets Seamus Heaney, John Montague, Rumi, Basho and many of the modern poets today.
The title, Where the three rivers Meet refers to the three rivers in Omagh that meet in the town’s centre, The Strule, Drumragh and the Camowen. I also draws much of my inspiration from The Sperrin Mountains, in my native Tyrone.
