Trophy Girl and other Poems

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


There are various poems and themes in this collection. ‘Trophy Girl’ explores the superficiality of fashion. On the other hand ‘Reply from an Agony Aunt’ is a cry for help from a young woman with low self-esteem. It is back to childhood days in ‘Pinkeens’ and a beautiful description of the garden in ‘A Summer’s Day.’ There is sadness in ‘Stopping Bye’ the house of her birth and the feelings of a child is described in ‘Lost Child.’ Then there are several poems about birds and animals and their antics – the greedy jackdaw, and the terns on Sandymount strand getting ready for their annual trip south. The caring diligent cat in ‘Mother Cat', the huge alligator with enormous jaws looking for food–which could be you, because that is what you are to him. No smiles there, he is what he is with no apologies. ‘Be Here Now’ the guru advises the reader to be in the moment or it is gone forever. Then there is ‘Needen’ the playful donkey who surely lives in the moment. Carmel McCarthy was born in Kilnaleck, Co Cavan, Ireland. She attended the local National School where her father was headmaster. Her secondary education was in a Convent Boarding School for five years. Then she attended University College Dublin where she qualified as a Medical Radiographer. She has worked in hospitals in Dublin, N. Ireland, UK and Canada. She lives in Dublin with her husband and has one son.
