I’ve been writing poems since I was a little girl. When I look back at them I sometimes think those poems were the best I’ve ever written! Thanks to the wonderful support of the Arts Office and the vibrant writing community in Kilkenny, my poems have found an audience. I hope you enjoy this one.

Angela’s novel The Winter Dress, inspired by events in Kilkenny in 1348, was selected for the Irish Writers’ Centre Novel Fair 2020 and was published by The Harvest Press in 2020.
