A Green Desert Father Vol.2 - Ninth President Of Ireland
In March 2013, Richard Mc Sweeney, a self-originating lyrical philosopher of Éire brought out a 794-paged hardback titled A Green Desert Father having as its subtitle Philosophical converse of an Árd Rí (High King) of Ireland. This contemporary collectable is a chronologically compiled anthology dating from January 2011 to February 2013 of original narratives, poems, fictional dialogues, and scenic photographs. It boldly addresses several universal themes such as love, freedom, morality, human trafficking, children and spousal abuse, religion, politics, fanaticism, prophecy, cosmology, art, fashion, music, and the esoteric.
There are conversations in it with for instance Anne Boleyn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Matthias Stormberger, Michel de Nostredame, Edgar Cayce, James Joyce, Joseph Goebbels, Greta Garbo, The Congregatio pro Doctrina Fidei, Dalai Lama, The Holy Qur’an, Angela Merkel, Al-Waleed al-Saud, Richard Dawkins, Anne Sinclair, Georg Gänswein, and Patrick Stewart just to name a few.
Aside from being a cosmopolitan work it is a one of a kind personal social commentary on early 21st century Ireland as it contains over seventy pages devoted exclusively to the author’s historic and courageous bid to become the 9th President of Ireland.
The entire work is being made available exclusively here on Shopify in 13 short volumes. The scenic photographs of the print work are not included.

“Thank you so much, Richard for taking the time out to speak to me.”
“I am delighted and honoured to do so, Sophie.
Welcome to Ireland.”
“Thank you, Richard.
First off, I would like to ask why is it that you are more widely known down along the East Coast of the United States - especially in New York, and in Boston than you are here in Ireland, yet you have never been to the United States?”
“Here in Ireland, Sophie, and I know it is hard to understand, but the media - in particular the newspapers and television stations don’t want it seems to have the Irish public be aware of someone who is refreshingly different, suitably experienced, highly competent, and who has a tremendous love for Ireland.
In fact I myself have difficulty comprehending it.”
I have been doing quite a lot of reading up on the democratic process of electing a president here in Ireland.
And also, Richard having accompanied you thus far on your visits to a number of these local councils, I must say I am quite shocked to find how very undemocratic some of them are in carrying out their responsibilities, both to their constituents and to the people of Ireland . . .” Faithlegg House interview
