Gregory O’Donoghue (1951-2005)
At heart an émigré, the last of a generation who believed in the potential of poetry to bring about radical social and individual change, a loner but convivial, truculent on occasion but tender and sympathetic to a fault, singular in his passion for his chosen craft . . .
— The Irish Times (obituary)
