The Quiet Quarter captivated us with a story every day for more than a decade. This anthology celebrates these inspiring. thought-provoking and often moving pieces, which were first heard on Lyric Notes on RTÉ Lyric FM. Edited by producer and presenter Máire Nic Gearailt, The Quiet Quarter: Ten Years of Great Irish Writing includes personal stories of love and loss, people and passions, animals and nature, joy and sadness. Here the words of long-established writers - such as John MacKenna, Vona Groarke, Carlo Gébler, John Moriarty, Gabriel Rosenstock, Celia de Fréine and Dermot Bolger - can be heard alongside less familiar voices. The Quiet Quarter is a remarkable and unique collection that delights in the breadth and quality of Irish writing.
