I’m a bilingual writer, writing both in Irish and in English.

Doireann talk

My poems have appeared in Poetry, The Irish Times, Poetry Ireland Review, The Stinging Fly, The Irish Examiner and elsewhere. Among my awards are the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, the Ireland Chair of Poetry bursary, the Michael Hartnett Award, and a Wigtown Award for Gaelic poetry (Scotland). Publications include the Irish language collections Résheoid and Dúlasair (both published by Coiscéim), the pamphlet A Hummingbird, your Heart (Smithereens Press) and Clasp (Dedalus Press) whose “poems excel in their consideration of motherhood” (Poetry Magazine).
