Local young poet Stephen Murphy, Lurganboy will perform a reading of some of his recently published verses at the poetry evening.

Stephen is the author of “The Sleeping Warrior” his first volume of poems which is issued by Inisciúin Press Nure Lurganboy.

On a current tour of Ireland to promote his first book, “The Sleeping Warrior” Stephen’s performances have seen him lauded as “Bardic” and “Inspired;” winning multiple awards along the way for the quality of his verse.

Stephen Murphy’s Poetry, “The Sleeping Warrior”, is a compelling mixture of passion, Irish mythology, politics, and clashes of Eastern and Western thought.

Inspired by the mythology of old and the politics of the modern day; his poetry is a mix of an Ireland beyond the romantics of postcards and a philosophy heavily inspired by Oriental thought.

Stephen has resided and worked in South Korea for a period of time while he has also toured India as well as a number of other Asian countries.

Murphy’s evening of poetry reading in Manorhamilton library will provide an occasion not to be missed.

All welcomed and admission is free. The event is on in Manorhamilton Library at 6.30pm on Friday, November 6.
