On 7th July last, on a day of glorious sunshine, poet Pat Boran read his poem The Inverse Wave as part of of a series of RTÉ Poetry Programme videos, funded by RTÉ Radio 1 and the Office of Public Works, and made in association with Poetry Ireland.

The Inverse Wave is published in A Man is Only as Good… (Orange Crate Books, 2017) - read more poetry by Pat Boran here.

The video was filmed in the grounds of Emo Court, Co Laois, a heritage site managed by the OPW. Later that evening, Pat, along with poet Kerry Hardie and uilleann piper David Power, joined Olivia O’Leary for a Heart of Summer event at Emo Court, one of a series of three events produced by Poetry Ireland in association with the OPW.
