About this Event

Singer/musician Síle Denvir will also perform a selection of poems from the book with Dairena.

"Motherhood, anger, sex, meditation and gratitude swirl in the sea of these poems, and if the sea washes the shores of Corca Dhuibhne, the territory and the known terrain of her poetry in Irish, Dairena Ní Chinnêide is well able for the sea and its turning currents when she embarks on this voyage into English. Here in these poems her own place sings to us in its own tongue, as her own life sings back to the poet in all its rich variety of experience. Here are poems of rueful sorrow, informed reflection, earned intelligence and delight.” - Theo Dorgan
