BORDER CROSSINGS #1 - THREE POETS FROM DUBLIN: NOEL DUFFY, CHIAMAKA ENYI-AMADI & RACHEAL HEGARTY

Noel Duffy was born in Dublin. He co-edited (with Theo Dorgan) the anthology ‘Watching the River Flow: A Century in Irish Poetry’(Poetry Ireland, 1999). His debut collection, ‘In the Library of Lost Objects’, was published by Ward Wood Publishing, London, in 2011 and was shortlisted for the Strong Award for best first collection by an Irish poet. His second collection, ‘On Light & Carbon’, followed in 2013, with his third, ‘Summer Rain’, appearing in 2016. His poetry has appeared widely, including in The Irish Times, The Financial Times and Poetry Ireland Review, and has been broadcast on RTE Radio 1 and BBC Radio 4. A new collection, ‘Street Light Amber’ will be published in autumn 2019. Noel was the recipient of the Patrick & Katherine Kavanagh Fellowship in poetry for 2018.

Chiamaka Enyi-Amadi is an Irish-Nigerian poet, writer, spoken-word performer and co-editor of the forthcoming ‘Writing Home’ anthology with Dedalus Press, launching this Autumn. Her writing and videos deal with themes of shifting identities, memory and belonging. Her work can be found on her blog - theunimaginablethings.wordpress.com - on Facebook @theunimaginablethings & on Instagram @Unimaginable_Me

Rachael Hegarty was born in Dublin, reared in Finglas and educated at University of Massachusetts at Boston, Trinity College Dublin and Queens University Belfast. Widely published and broadcast, her debut collection, ‘Flight Paths over Finglas’, won the 2018 Shine Strong Award. Her second collection, ‘May Day 1974’, was launched on the 17th of May this year (2019) to commemorate the Dublin and Monaghan bombings. Rachael works at the CDETB and the Trinity Access Programme but reckons she learns more from her students than she could ever teach. Her kids say she is a doctor with dyslexia and uses the F word way too much: Finglas, feminism and feckin’ poetry.
