Biography of Hugh Mitchell

I was born in England but my parents were Irish, so I don't have any strong sense of national identity. Living and working in many different countries has added to the sense of being an outsider, but has brought many rewards. In the last few years I have lived in Istanbul, the Czech Republic, Bahrain and (currently) the Netherlands. Where to next?

Return To Ireland's Eye

Last night I had a dream of Ireland's Eye
wind-ruffled island of my childhood hour
- waves, restless seaweed, cliffs and gull-filled sky
the ruined church, the ever-watchful tower.

After a day exploring crags and beach
we'd board the motorboat to take us home
leaving the islet to unpeopled peace
its history dozing in the deepening gloom.
