  • I'm travelling through the land of my grandchildren’s birth past nine small towns.

    Tamlaght
    Lisbellow
    Maguirsbridge
    Brookborough
    Fivemiletown
    Clogher
    Auger
    Ballygawley
    Dungannan

    Names that fit strangely round my tongue.

    Gentle words you inhale and exhale from the back of your throat.

    Green fields, tiny houses up on the hills, streams and lakes, cows and sheep; green, green, all green.

    I’m meeting a woman who I’ve never seen before at an unknown city.
