Dairena Ní Chinnéide and
Peadar Ó hUallaigh
with Rónán Ó Snodaigh
Dairena Ní Chinnéide is an incantatory poet. Her work is deeply
rooted in the language, folklore and traditions of her native Corca
Dhuibhne, but also pulses with cutting-edge contemporary rhythms. Her
collections include "Máthair an Fhiaigh/The Raven's Mother" and
"Bleachtaire na Seirce." Tonight she will be accompanied by Kíla's
lead singer and multi-instrumentalist, Rónán Ó Snodaigh.
Peadar Ó hUallaigh's "Tír Tairngre," winner of the 2010 Rupert and
Eithne Strong Award, is a vision-poet; and he is a unafraid to take a
voyage to the discrete lands of Utopia. An accomplished traditional
musician, Peadar will also play on the flute tonight.
This bi-lingual reading is curated by Liam Carson, director of the
IMRAM Irish Language Literature Festival.
