The Sounds Of Love - Fuaimean Gràidh: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Niall O'Gallagher...

For the latest SWH! podcast Ali caught up with Gaelic poet Niall O'Gallagher to talk about his book of Selected Poems The Sounds Of Love - Fuaimean Gràidh, which Niall was kind enough to read from.

The conversation touched upon translation - including trusting your translators - the process from the poet's point of view, the themes which run through the collection, viewing his older work through the prism of time, the importance of the title, and more.

The two also discuss the tradition of Gaelic poetry, the other traditions which Niall draws from, and his inspirations, poetic or otherwise, to be found in his work.

It was great talking to Niall who is not only a feted poet, but also a journalist and broadcaster who is steeped in both Gaelic and Scottish literature.
