Anne Walsh Donnelly
Author and Poet
Anne Walsh Donnelly writes poetry, prose and plays. She is a single mother of two teenagers. Originally from Carlow in the south-east of Ireland, she now lives in Mayo in the west of Ireland.
She is the Poet Laureate for the town of Belmullet in the west of Ireland.
Anne says, “I experiment, take risks, run wild on the page, always hoping my work will resonate with the reader. I write my emotional truth and bring my whole-self to my writing.”
She has been described by the Irish poet, Kevin Higgins as “a poet of exceptional bravery, a pretty sensational original voice. I hope the poetry world doesn’t tame her, though no doubt it will try.”
Her chapbook, ‘The Woman With An Owl Tattoo,’ and her full length poetry collection, ‘Odd as F*ck,’ both published by Fly on the Wall press are available to buy on this website.
Anne loves to read her work and talk about all things creative. She is available for public readings, podcasts, workshops and interviews. A sample of her reading can be seen here.
