Here is a link to a radio programme I worked on about the Innti poetry journal and its legacy. Featuring interviews with Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Gabriel Rosenstock, Pádraig Ó Cíobháin, Liam Carson and Caitríona Ní Chléirchín, the documentary tries to capture the spirit of the journal. It was broadcast on Raidio na Gaeltachta on the 27 December 2021.

Review: File ar Fhile
Many thanks to Aifric Mac Aodha for her review of the series ‘File ar Fhile’ which was published by Cois Life in May. The review is published in The Irish Times.
The series is also on the shortlist for Gradam de Bhaldraithe, a new Oireachtas literary award that recognises excellence in translation.
Wake Forest Series of Irish Poetry
Absolutely thrilled to be included in David Wheatley‘s selection for The Wake Forest Series of Irish Poetry, Vol. IV alongside Trevor Joyce, Aidan Mathews, Peter McDonald and Ailbhe Darcy. It’s available for preorder on Amazon.
Translations of my poems are by David Wheatley, Gabriel Rosenstock and Billy Ramsell.
Féile na Bealtaine
Here are some photographs by Fiona Morgan (www.fionamorgan.ie) of Féile na Bealtaine. She really captures the lovely vibe of the festival. I did a reading in An Café Liteartha with Gabriel Rosenstock and Simon O Faoláin. Tunes were courtesy of Maurice McKenna & Mark Crickard.
I was chuffed to participate in the legendary Poetry Morning @Dick Mac’s on Saturday morning with Conal Creedon and Sara Baume. The inimitable Diarmuid de Faoite was MC and he steered us through a morning of poetry, songs, fiction and anecdotes with great verve.
All in all, a great festival – will be certainly be returning next year. Mo bhuíochas le lucht eagraithe na Féile as tús spleodrach a chur leis an samhradh.
Féile na Bealtaine
I’m really looking forward to reading at this year’s Féile na Bealtaine in Dingle. I’ll be reading at An Caife Liteartha on Friday 1st May (Lá Bealtaine) at 3pm. It’s always a pleasure to read with Simon O Faoláin and Gabriel Rosenstock, and we’ll be joined by musicians Maurice McKenna and Mark Crickard. More information about this (free!) event here.
Once my duty is done, I’ll be going to as many as the other events as I can – like Ré in St James’ Church.
It’s a great programme – check it out here: http://feilenabealtaine.ie/home/
There’s nowhere like Daingean Uí Chúis on a Bank Holiday weekend!
