About the Author

Moya Cannon was born in Dunfanaghy, Co. Donegal in 1956. She studied history and politics at University College, Dublin, and international relations at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. She has published two collections of poems, Oar (Salmon Press, Galway, 1990) and The Parchment Boat (Gallery Press, Meath, 1997). She has been editor of Poetry Ireland Review and has been writer in residence at Trent University, Ontario and at the Centre Culturel, Paris. A recipient of the Brendan Behan Award and of the Lawrence O Shaughnessy Award, she was elected to Aosdana, the affiliation of Irish writers and visual artists, in 2004. She teaches at a school for adolescent travellers in Galway.


All the journeyings envisaged and chronicled by Moya Cannon are to be sought in a remarkable symbiosis of humanity and the natural world, a perceived and felt unity of creation which goes light years beyond any mere empathy of imagining. Poetry Ireland Review The intensely lyrical musings on life, landscape and love stir the heart, disturb the settled thought ... like her fellow northener Seamus Heaney, Cannon digs deep with the pen. Cork Examiner
