Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin

Renowned poet Ní Chuilleanáin is the current Ireland Professor of Poetry, she was a founding member and editor of the literary journal Cyphers and is one of the major Irish poets of her generation.


Renowned poet Ní Chuilleanáin is the current Ireland Professor of Poetry, she was a founding member and editor of the literary journal Cyphers and is one of the major Irish poets of her generation. This is her first visit to the Irish Literary Society and she will be reading from her own work.

Ní Chuilleanáin is the Vermeer of contemporary poetry. Her luminous interiors achieve great visual beauty, but should not be mistaken for exercises in escapism. They are sites where history and the individual brush against each other, force fields of action and radiant understanding.
Aingeal Clare, The Guardian
She has won numerous awards and in addition to her poetic output has been an innovative and important publisher of other Irish writers and has translated poetry from Irish (most recently Máire Mhac an tSaoi), Italian (Maria Attanasio, Antonella Anedda and several others) and from the Romanian poetry of Ileana Mӑlӑncioiu The Legend of the Walled-Up Wife (2012). With Medbh McGuckian, Ní Chuilleanáin also co-translated the poems of Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill in The Water Horse (2001).
