..A poet of dramatic self-awareness and love, of sardonic wit when it comes to friends and family, of sharp observation when it comes to locality and dream landscape...

Ceaití Ní Bheildiún and Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh: Discuss their poetry collections with Helen Ní Shé.

Tonn Teaspaigh agus Dánta Eile by Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh is her third collection in sixteen years and her writing has deservedly garnered an audience and literary awards. As noted in an insightful forward by Daniela Theinová to Tonn Teaspaigh agus Dánta Eile, much of the poet’s ouvre is given over to an anatomy of love. Tonn Teapaigh agus Dánta Eile is another captivating collection by Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh.

The one that stands out most to me is Tonn Teaspaigh agus Dánta Eile ... this collections received the big poetry prize at An Oireachtas... I read it while recovering from Covid and I felt so calmed from reading it, but there are some great poems in it about motherhood...
