Attracta Fahy

Dinner in the Fields

Fahy's work is the true poetry of the soul. From the depths of her intuitive self her poems speak to us of the archetypes of the collective unconscious.
Whether we read them in solitude or hear them spoken they give us a sense of our connectedness to the universe, to nature, and to each other

-     Máirín Ní Nualláin Psychiatrist and Analytical Psychologist.

Appearing in journals for some time, Attracta Fahy’s poems now find their home in Dinner in the Fields.  Like the ancients, she bears an attraction for the depths and modes of spirit, our humanity among the deceased, in lyrics of moving recollection.  Here we find the strict codes of rural life, turf fires, gravestone etchings, the character of fields, thmaw of slurry pits, the waves of migratory birds whose rhythms map our own instincts of homing and displacement.
