Mary O'Donnell


Mary O’Donnell was born in Co. Monaghan, an area whose geographical proximity to Northern Ireland turns it into a cultural space of liminality, somewhere in between British influences and the Irish heritage. This ambivalence in the geographical and identity coordinates of her home place is reflected in O’Donnell’s perception of her own position as a writer in the Republic of Ireland belonging to a specific poetic tradition.
