“A work of muscle and grit, of vision and clarity, BlOODROOT is truly exceptional. Among the strongest debut collections of the decade” Doireann Ní Ghríofa.
About the Book
“A distinctive new voice with a mature sense of the lyric form and a rare sense of lyric completion, rooted in the bloodroot of women’s history.” Thomas McCarthy.
“In this remarkable debut collection, Ní Churreain bears witness to the lived experiences of women, including those Irish women who for too long have been overlooked and silenced; women like Ann Lovett, Joanne Hayes, and the many nameless, disregarded women who lived lives of imprisonment within Irish Institutions; women whose stories are haunted by the ever present spectre of the patriarchal Irish State. Ní Churreain’s poems both captivate and challenge.” Dr. Sinéad Kennedy, Department of English, Maynooth University.
