The Burren

She stand majestic
spine aligned
pointed shoes of whitecap waves
face to face and side to side
Do si do
swing me low
stepping in and stepping out

Lilac heather knitted in
limestone or shale
touch my outstretched hand,
why don’t you
turn your partner ’round and ’round

Do The Burren Rock

Following the death of her mother by elder abuse in 2010, she often writes about the failures of Irish systems in protecting her mother and also herself as a victim of crimes in her mother’s estate. She writes frequently about oppression, elder abuse and domestic violence– in the forms of poetry, fiction and non fiction in the hopes it will help shine the light on Ireland’s shame.
