A StoneWelcome to Irish writer Noel Duffy’s homepage.


Very nice review of Street Light Amber by Rowena Sommerville in the spring 2021 edition of The High Window, edited by David Cooke. I really enjoy the seriousness and scope of this always excellent journal so delighted to be featured there.

Really delighted to receive this very considered review of Street Light Amber by James Roderick Burns in the excellent London Grip. It’s the first review proper of the collection and so pleased it captured the essence of the work.

I’m very flattered that Street Light Amber has been selected as one of the top ten poetry books of 2020 by the Books for Breakfast podcast in conjunction with Dublin City Council Culture Company project Our City Our Books. My thanks to hosts Peter Sirr and Enda Wyley for choosing me among such esteemed company.

You can find an extensive interview with me about Street Light Amber at writer Shauna Gilligan’s excellent Writers Chat series. My thanks to her for taking the time to read the book so closely and asking such interesting questions about it.

After the delays of the summer, I’m pleased and relieved that the print edition of Street Light Amber is now available from all the usual online book retailers. It’s been a long road to get this one into print due to the current circum-stances in the world right now and I really hope you might seek out a copy.

The Kindle edition is also available. It can found at Amazon.

Launch notes for the collection by the brilliant poet David Butler can be found on my blog Ampersand. We had to be slightly imaginative in these times to mark the occasion in some small way
