County Lives - Dermot Bolger

County Lives is a sequence of poems by Dermot Bolger, primarily in the voices of commuters undertaking everyday journeys across South Dublin County. These poems were displayed in twelve locations across the County between Sept 2007 and Sept 2008.

Between the January 1st and March 30th 2008, people who live or work in South Dublin County were invited to submit to the author, via this website, up to three original poems that reflect some aspect of their lives within the county. In September 2008, the full text of County Lives was published, consisting of Dermot Bolgerís original sequence interlinked with a representative cross section of submitted poems by other authors.
