This first collection of poetry from Una O'Higgins O'Malley is a celebration, words from a heart that has witnessed a life of forgiveness, of the search for truth and justice and has fought bigotry and intolerance.
"Her contribution to the life of modern Ireland has been singular. She has been a constant witness for tolerance, for forgiveness, for reconciliation."—Conor Brady
Una O'Higgins O'Malley was born in 1927, five months before the assassination of her father, Kevin O'Higgins, vice-president of the Irish Free State. Her extraordinary life and pioneering work is recounted in From Pardon and Protest, her critically-acclaimed memoirs, published in 2001 by Arlen House.
