5800-year-old rock scribing found near Croagh Patrick(Ireland)
Well it’s no wonder to me as you can see in my poem ‘ The Croagh and Clew Bay'( Poems From an Irish Hearth)
On balmy July days like these…as mentioned in my poem’Valentia Moon ‘ (Poems from an Irish Hearth)
Foxgloves hang like celestial bells here today in the garden of Ireland …bliss !
Poems from an Irish Hearth
At last my book of Poetry is available on kindle through Amazon and just live today. Yippee! Here is the picture of the front cover and the link below. (Hard back copies soon).
Sláinte Mhaith. TC.
Hunting the wren under a silver moon.
Yellow bittern stepping cautiously
In Red October.
Some brothers filled Carnegie hall
One your namesake, you knew that.
A true scribe hardly surprising
Brehon laws written and handed down by blood relatives
All is grey this October
Tis your shadow!
Tom Clancy RIP !
Wild mountain flower cut down in full bloom
Shoulders of oak supporting pure granite
Black bicycle black suit black shoes
Black and tans
Wild West Cork blood
Wild heart pounding
Spiderly weaving the silken thread
Nursing a nation’s gaping wound
Exuberant and childlike
A March hare contorting predacious hounds
Indigenous as wild watercress
Obscure like the Bean Sidhe
Wild Celt tragically innocent
Endowed with lupine instinct
Kindred brother of Setanta
Vivacious amongst the smitten roses
Plucked at Béal na Bláth
The mouth of flowers

Renowned as an Irish Traditional Musician, Tom brings his own special twist to not so traditional tunes.
Having been an International Rugby player, he is rightly positioned to do a version of Ireland’s call.
But the album is dedicated to his beloved daughter, Nessa!
Hi haunting version of the Dylan’s Knockin on Heaven’s door, takes the “LP” to a whole different level of Irish music.
Also featured on the album is the Pogues Stye, traditional Irish band, The Shnipes. Their style has been referred to as “More Undertones than Wolf Tones!” The Shnipes also featured legendary Irish Punk drummer, Dave Moloney.
The Shnipes guitarist, Don McGuinness, also joins Tom to raise the tempo on this album.
This pre iTunes release is available only through the tom
