“Ní Churreáin often captures a whole world of cultural and historical implications in a single, simple, but metaphorically rich image.” The Yale Review
“In this remarkable debut collection,Ní Churreáin 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.
“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.
