Tomás Ó Cárthaigh (Tom Carty)

Portrait of Tomás
Ó Cárthaigh (Tom Carty)Tomás Ó Cárthaigh, 13 Church Street, Tullamore, Co. Offaly, Ireland
    Paul Polansky’s foreword to Tomás Ó Cárthaigh’s Book Writings in Rhyme (2006):
    “A New York editor once told me one of the pitfalls of editing a literary journal is that out of the poets and writers you meet, 99 per cent of them spend 99 percent of their time whining about their love lives; eventually, the sensitivities are blunted until you reach the point where you pull the covers over your head at the slightest hint of another human being’s pain.
    Thomas Carty is one of the few poets who do not fall into this category. Apparently without fear or apprehension he takes on the most difficult themes, the themes most poets are in capable of handling: injustice, discrimination, genocide.
    Although I am not a rhyming poet because I fear the search for a rhyme can compromise the original thought or feeling, Carty bulldozes ahead with his rhymes and makes them work without diluting the power of his poetry.
    As any literary editor will tell you, we need many more fearless poets like Thomas Carty.”
