Orfhlaith Foyle is an intriguing Wordsmith – a Poet, Novelist, Playwright and Short Story writer. Orfhlaith was born in Nigeria to Irish parents. Around 1976 she came St. Peter’s N.S., Athlone. She made a gentle entrance, not knowing how to us she was quite exotic. Her life and career took her to numerous countries, ensuring her suitability for this year’s theme for Poetry Day Ireland – “New Directions: Maps and Journeys”.
Here are various quotes from Orfhlaith’s Anthology “Red Riding Hood’s Dilemma”, published by Arlen House in 2010. (And at the end of each line, in parentheses, is the poem’s title.)
