Gerry Murphy


Gerry Murphy was born in Cork in 1952. He has published seven collections of poetry, including End of Part One: New and Selected Poems (2006) and My Flirtation with International Socialism (2010). In 2008 his work was adapted for actors and musicians by Crazy Dog Audio Theatre as The People’s Republic of Gerry Murphy. He also published a volume of versions of the Polish poet Katarzyna Borun-Jagodzinska (2005).


“Murphy’s poetry is of that apparently-effortless
kind that offers the pleasures of instant recognition
and the consolation of certainty of touch.”
– Fiona Sampson, The Irish Times
