The Last Irish romantic is the debut collection of poems by Dr. C.A. Buckley, comprising four sections – (1) journey out of darkness; (2) the tree of love; (3) the pilgrim Hiker; and (4) occasional lights – which between them explore a variety of subjects, from early childhood, through romantic and spiritual love, along the way charting the author’s travels at home and abroad.

Out of this strange mix he has to shape his redemption, with the help of a close friend, who is an Agatha Christie style former Dublin detective.

Into this mix comes romance in the form of a fiery red head Rose and the local schoolmistress Deirdre. Which will he choose? Into this magical mix he also weaves philosophy, poetry, and his tender love of country life with its panoply of fraught childhood memories.
