Join Annemarie Ní Churreáin as she leads this informal and intimate session of poetry readings by regional writers Denise Blake, Chris Sparks and Charlie Gracie. Always an inspiring and enjoyable event!

Annemarie Ní Churreáin is a poet from northwest Donegal. Her debut collection Bloodroot (Doire Press, 2017) was shortlisted for the Shine Strong Award for best first collection in Ireland and for the 2018 Julie Suk Award in the U.S.A. She is the author of a suite of poems about Dublin titled Town (The Salvage Press, 2018). 

Ní Churreáin’s poems have been published, read and reviewed widely in Ireland and abroad. The Yale Review has surmised that “Ní Churreáin often captures a whole world of cultural and historical implications in a single, simple, but metaphorically rich image.” 

 In 2016 Ní Churreáin was the recipient of a Next Generation Artist Award by the President Michael D. Higgins on behalf of the Arts Council. In 2018 she was recipient of the inaugural John Broderick Residency Award. Ní Churreáin is the 2019 Commissioned Writer at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios Dublin and a 2019-20 Writer in Residence at Maynooth University, Kildare.
