You’re invited to an Irish adventure. From a small island in the Atlantic Ocean - off West Coast of Europe - Hyperlocal podcasting from Cork. Your host is poet Paul O’Mahony - language is fluid & melodic (sometimes) - value-laden & political (othertimes) - This is for people who crave detail, not generalisations. Often there's drama & opera - depression & resurrection - dog-walking & fatherhood - poetry & fantasy - Above all, you'll find this podcast predictably imaginative

“There are no scooters in Cork” - declares Paul O’Mahony who’s lived in Cork for 13 years. “Scooters rule the roads in Italy” declares Paul who’s been to Puglia - for the wedding of his son Ben to Emma - and to Sorrento (close to Naples) for a holiday. “Cork & Naples should twin?”
This adventure begins with the sound of Paul O'Mahony panting.  He's recovering from his very slow run.  Out of breath, he utters words about golf.  He listens to birdsong, as his dog Louis pants.  You hear Paul wondering why the birds don't tweet from the top of the trees.Moanbaun Wood is Paul's favourite walking place, with gorse in yellow bloom alongside the trail.You hear the Rottweiler and her owners.  Plus the conversation. plus how the two dogs - Bella & Louis - get on.Should rottweilers be muzzled?Do they have a "bad name"?Should rottweilers sleep on your bed?Is it therapeutic for Paul to meet a rottweiler?You find out by listening.
You are a welcome companion on this walk around the estate.  Louis, the English Setter, and Puma the black cat, are with us on this adventure. Please listen with an amused ear.And thanks very much,Paul the poet
Google "Irish Epic Poem in 33 Cantos".You'll find the Kindle Edition of Paul O'Mahony's "Inferno".  Written in November 2009, 33,000 words crushed into one story. It's a crime poem, a shocking thriller, an autobiography.You better be warned: it's a fierce unrelenting attack on certain members of the Roman Catholic bishops' circle, members of government - the ruling class.But it's full of lines as dense as these " you wouldn't want to spoil the thrillof unbeckoning insight ...""Is the Mahābhārata where you findGanesh strumming a lyre?Those are lazy whisperers ..."This episode is an introduction to the poem by the poet. It is not the poem, however lyrical it sounds.You never know - this might put you off buying the Kindle edition.
You hear a Cork perspective on the adventure that's Tiger Woods at Augusta Georgia USA 2019.Highlights include  "I thought Tiger Woods had gone to hell ..."Some of you detest golf - this is for youWho will win the Masters? Gambling my moneyA poem written for Tiger WoodsThe End
