By the Black Castle is the second collection of poems released by local author, Seán Ó Roideacháin, following his acclaimed debut, Under the Black Bridge.

With a reputation for exploring modern-day themes from an original viewpoint with raw, unflinching honesty, Ó Roideacháin’s has quickly established himself as one Limerick’s finest new poets.

The book is published by Revival Press (an imprint of The Limerick Writers’ Centre) under their Community Publishing initiative and will be launched by local author Micheál Ó Siochrύ. Attendance is free.
