Book of Selected Poems and Stories

James Donohoe Selected Poems and Stories – complied by Brian Mc Auliffe 

Brian Mc Auliffe’s grandfather, James (Jim) Donohoe, was a Garda in Ireland’s police force, An Garda Síochána, from its inception in 1922 up to his retirement, after almost 36 years exemplary service, in 1958. Though a native of Ballymahon in Co.Longford, he spent all of his adult life in Co. Donegal, based at Garda stations in Ardara, Pettigo, Rathmullan, and Lifford. During this time Jim wrote many poems and stories, a lot of which were published in the Garda Review magazine. This book is a compilation of a selection of these, together with some previously unpublished poems and stories that have been held in Brian’s family since Jim died in 1980.
