by John O'Donnell Cotter

ISBN: 9781527265905

A Donegal poet who writes with acute clarity on some of the issues facing us today John O'Donnell's first volume of work will appear in local shops in the coming days A Donegal poet who writes with acute clarity on some of the issues facing us today Poet and author John O’Donnell Cotter was born in Cork and brought to live in Churchilll with his adopted parents in Donegal when he was a baby. It was at national school that John first found he had an inclination to write. He liked to sit in the class writing poetry on his copybook at every opportunity. The art was mostly discouraged by teachers who preferred that John focused on the subject at hand. So, setting his pencil and copybook aside John folded his arms, sat upright and stared ahead at the blackboard and listened to what was being taught. It was years later he returned to his first love which is writing poetry. Thousands of poems His new book ‘The Wild Atlantic Poet’ is one that includes work that he has been working on for many long years. Over the past decade John has began to focus in earnest on his writing with diligence and determination. The poems that are printed in this first edition have been chosen from thousands of other poems that he has compiled over the years. John has written poetry often and encapsulated moments in time whether it is listening to the pitter-patter of the rain against the window or casting a stone into the wild Atlantic ocean from a Donegal beach. Creative arts John has lived in Donegal most his life and has enjoyed working in many different trades. John has been an adept hand at different professions but has always found that his mind came back to the creative arts - to his love of music and writing. The subject matter of his poetry is wide and varied from beautiful descriptive poetry about fairies in Fintown, to walking along Port Arthur beach.
