Paul Durcan
Paul Durcan is a contemporary Irish poet, born in Dublin on October 16, 1944, famous for his self-deprecating wit, and wry analysis of the condition of the Irish male in society. His main published collections include: A Snail in my Prime, Crazy About Women, Greetings to Our Friends in Brazil and Cries of an Irish Caveman. He appeared on the 1990 Van Morrison album Enlightenment, giving an idiosyncratic vocal performance on the song "In The Days Before Rock'n'Roll", which he also co-wrote. He is a member of Aosdána. In 2003, he published a collection of his weekly addresses to the nation, Paul Durcan's Diary, on RTÉ Radio I program Today with Pat Kenny.
