'It was a pleasure and an honour to accept the role of Editor for this year's Kilkenny Poetry Broadsheet. The number of submissions received, the highest ever, says a lot about the vitality of poetry as an art form in Kilkenny, and made my task of choosing the poems for inclusion all the more difficult..'

Her first collection of poetry, Snow Negatives, won the Patrick Kavanagh Award in 2006 and was published by Dedalus Press the following year.
