I will be touring with my 'On Raglan Road' show based on my book 'Ireland's Great Love Songs and the Women who Inspired Them'. The show features songs from the book and an illustrated talk explaining who these muses were. So if you want to find out who exactly was Nancy Spain or Grace and who inspired the song 'On Raglan Road' buy the book or come along to a live show.

PUBLISHED WORKS

On Raglan Road

The story of who inspired fourteen well known Irish love songs through the centuries such as Thin Lizzy’s ‘Sarah’, Mick Hanly’s ‘Past the Point Of Rescue’ and Johnny Duhan’s ‘The Voyage’.

More Lives Than One

The story of the Wilde family across seven generations is an epic saga of sensational triumphs and dreadful tragedies. 

 

What Our Shoes Say About Us

Gerard Hanberry’s fourth collection explores the fragility of existence in a world where greed, violence and the inevitability of death is counterbalanced by the tenderness found in a loving relationship

At Grattan Road

In this, his third collection, Gerard Hanberry goes for rawness and honesty, exploring a deeper well of feeling – while there is humour and celebration he does not shirk the darker shades of regret, fear, anger and loss.
