The Bright Room brings together poems written over the last decade. This outstanding book confirms Michael McCarthy as an insightful storyteller: wise and grounded in the everyday the poems nevertheless celebrate the numinous moments in all our lives.


As poet and as priest, Michael McCarthy in this book bears a sort of witness to the world, at that point where the ordinary touches upon the eternal. – Bill Herbert


Here are stories that hold: from childhood in rural County Cork to an adult life lived largely in parish ministry; from stories of travel worldwide  to those spun up out of the nearly nowhere of imagination. And no shortage of humour: cheeky, fantastical, self-deprecating. – Gillian Allnut
