How it’s New York: Kevin Holohan is an Irish writer who lives in Brooklyn and will be taking part in “Favorite Poems” at The Irish Arts Center at 8pm on November 2 to launch Poerty Fest 2012.
How it’s Irish: It’s a rumination on Celtic Tigers and other odd fauna.
Now, if you ask anyone what image springs to mind at the mention of “Celtic Tiger,” or if you type the term into your local neighborhood search engine (any web barons who happen to find themselves reading this take note: you need to shell out the readies if you expect me to use your search engine’s name as a verb), the result is usually kind of green-colored Bengal Tiger, either preening or abject depending on the vintage of the image. This is a very unfortunate accident of imagery and one that, had it gone another way, could have saved Ireland billions and much pain and distress.
