ABOUT THE BOOK
Faightear plé sa chnuasach nua ar Dhia, an dúlra, nádúr na filíochta, an choimhlint idir an sean agus an nua, an ceangal idir an dúchas agus an domhan mór maille le cur síos ar ghrá an fhile dá ceantar dúchais, Corca Dhuibhne. I gCorcaigh a rugadh Bríd Ní Mhóráin, ach is i gCiarraí a tógadh í. Is é seo an triú cnuasach s'aici. Foilsíodh Ceiliúradh Cré i 1992 agus Fé Bhrat Bhríde i 2002.
This collection explores nature, God, the conflict between the new and the old, the connection between heritage and the world, the nature of poetry and the poet's love for her home in Corca Dhuibhne. Bríd was born in Cork but grew up in Kerry. This is her third poetry collection. Ceiliúradh Cré was published in 1992 and Fé Bhrat Bhríde was published in 2002
