Summary:"Eoghan 'Gino' Mac Cormaic from Derry served fifteen years in jail and was on the blanket protest for five years at a time when ten of his comrades died on hunger strike. eoghan began writing poems on toilet paper and cigarette papers and smuggled them out ot his family who kept them safe from British Army raids and seizure. Some of the poems were published in Republican News. A selection of these early 'blanket' poems, and other prison poems written after the protest, give us an insight into eoghan and his comrades' lives - which even the prison couldn't contain - and allows us to look with them from their cell windows out into the world where hopes and dreams would be realised someday." --
