Pat Boran’s haiku sequence (or rensaku) explores the flora and fauna of Dublin Bay’s (North) Bull Island, a land mass formed by the changing currents in the bay after the construction of the North Bull Wall (between 1820–25) in an effort to improve access to the port. Boran’s rhyming haiku observe the interplay of bird, human and plant life on the island, and celebrate the delicate balance of a biosphere on the very doorstep of Ireland’s capital city. The book is illustrated by the author’s own photographs of the island, taken over the course of a year of daily visits.
