Tonight I’ll take my unfaithful memory to dinner
In an expensive restaurant
I’ll order plenty of good red wine
And let her slip away awhile

This was Katie Lynch’s piece in memory of her friend.
‘This whole new place was overwhelming at first,
The pain of isolation can’t be described in a verse,
But returning to this spot a few months after,
The silence in your new home was filled with laughter,
And with some time became one,
Our new little Sligo son,
Your warming smile and embrace,
When I sit here I see your face.
Rest in peace Jamie
