Aifric Mac Aodha

Mac Aodha is an original voice and a very fine poet . . . a strong female, feminist voice, endowed with a canny sense of the unheimlich, whose poetry enriches our literary life both at home and ‘out foreign’.

— Cliona Ní Riordáín, The Irish Times

Foreign News

Foreign News, poems in Irish by Aifric Mac Aodha with translations into English by David Wheatley is a book whose reach and aims are evident in its richly allusive sequences.

In matching her sense of play and her use of idiom David Wheatley proves himself a perfect counterpart for Aifric Mac Aodha’s poems that resound with longing and a modern sensibility.
