About this ebook

My Ireland is an anthology of poems, chosen from hundreds, reflecting the author’s thoughts at that particular time in Ireland. As a creative writer, the author has decided to write this autobiography in a style different to his earlier works about his life and leadership.

Themes of love, lust, sex, sensuality, anger, jealousy, betrayal, power, corruption, greed, ancestry, heritage, history, race, religion, politics, spirituality, pride of place, sense of belonging permeate the pages and crop up in everyday encounters as the author takes us on a personal journey, to places both near and far, taking time to relish in the moment and marvel at how other people go about their lives.

Ukachukwu Okorie was born in Owerri, the Biafra heartland. He is a poet and great Pan-African leader. He attended St Peter Claver Seminary, Okpala near Aba, which was established by Irish Spiritans in colonial Nigeria. He has lived in Ireland for over 15 years, where he founded The African International, a pan-African news magazine, in 2014. He holds a Masters in Globalisation from Dublin City University in Ireland.
