"Sorry for your troubles" is down to earth with real experiences of people.
Whilst in poetic language, stories are told in real everyday language.
You get the sense that Pádraig is interested in the people he interviews and shares experiences with.
Well done - an enjoyable read - if you can say the "troubles" in NI can be an enjoyable read!
Pádraig's grá for the Irish Language is infectious.
Good luck for future writing.

found the poems powerful and gently terse- personae from a bleak post- conflict zone speak of loss and the need to share

Padrig's command of language is evident. That he has a full knowledge of Irish brings untold riches to his use of English and the complex discussion about Northern Ireland. A wonderful work that is intelligent and moving. Highly recommended.

Powerful and heartfelt 10 Sept. 2013
By AnnBarbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Padraig O'Tuama is incredibly gifted with a poetic voice to say what can't be said and point to meanings beyond what words can express. This short book with make you laugh and cry and feel from the inside a number of what you might have thought were mutually exclusive points of view. It demonstrates the great contribution to be made by artists and poets in the work of solving the worlds problems and making a better society.
