Born inMoreThe Friendship Tree: The Life and Poems of Davoren Hanna contains selected poems by one of Irelands most remarkable poets, together with a heartfelt - and often painfully honest - memoir of Davoren by his father, journalist Jack Hanna.

Born in Dublin in 1975. Davoren was able to control very little of his body, and mute of speech, was assessed as mentally handicapped until age seven. Learning to communicate first by using a letter-board while sitting on his mother, Brighids lap, he began to write poetry which received wide critical acclaim in Ireland and Britain. Davoren Hannas first book, Not Common Speech, was published by Raven Arts Press in 1990, and an RTE television documentary Poised for Flight was made on his life and work.

Then in July 1990, his mother Brighid, who cradled him into life and speech, died suddenly, and four years later Davoren, after a series of health crises, died peacefully in his sleep in July 1994.
