Patrick Galvin 15 August — 10 May  was an Irish poet, singer, playwright, and prose and screenwriter born in Cork's inner city. Galvin was born in Cork in at a time of great political transition in Ireland. His mother was a Republican and his father a Free Stater which gave rise to ongoing political tension within the household and later informed his well loved poem "My Father Spoke with Swans" and his autobiographical memoir Song For a Poor Boy. His early poetry shows the influences of Gaelic poetry whilst his later poetry reflects more international rhythms and themes. His childhood ended dramatically when he was sent to Daingean industrial school, noted for its abuse of young people in its care. This experience had a powerful influence on his earlier poetry which expresses the fear and brutality of that time: . Come fifteen now, the flogging belt, the prison cell, The cruel days, the friendships hanged and cold, The dead beat of winter and the hungry bell, The very young are battered and grow old. And every day they stand about and watch and stare, The shaven heads, the broken ribs, the iron rod. And every night they weep an empty eye And curse the hand that killed Almighty God.
