“Whomever commissioned, created and installed this abomination plaque has some explaining to do. We have been assured there is no connection with the County Council. This is a private commission by someone who needs to sack his/her proofreader. Spelling apart, although I have no way of proving it, I’m fairly confident in saying Queen Maeve didn’t look like Barbie either.”

About Ireland’s most celebrated stalker poet.

Yeats in Love is an illustrated, semi-fictional account of WB Yeats’ obsessive yet ultimately fruitless pursuit of Maud Gonne, illustrated in detail on every painful page by award-winning Illustrator Annie West. To celebrate WB Yeats’ 150th Birthday in 2015, Annie has gathered together remarks from those who bore witness to this unfolding story- Douglas Hyde, Katherine Tynan, Lily and Lolly Yeats and others- and mixed them together with some of Yeats’ most enduring love poems.

All this and MacCoille.
