Mayo Living 2018

The long veil of winter is shifting.  Moorhen, tufted duck, swans, pheasant, mallard and grey partridge have gifted our turlough. The cats have enjoyed strolls near the flooded edges of Lough Mask, and played upon the frozen surface wondering at the shifting life beneath. And yes the deer have begun to venture out. Even the lambs have arrived earlier than the farmer was expecting. Mother Nature, gotta love her.

Dublin born and raised, Mari returned to Ireland with her husband and daughter in 2008, after living in the USA since the early ’80s. A former journalist, ombudsman and newsroom administrator she now lives in Mayo. 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.
