January 2019Welcome to my new site under the English version of my name. The as gaeilge spelling (Órfhlaith) has been replaced, and now reads as written on my original birth certificate – Órla. My mother had wanted my name as gaeilge but she was advised that it might be misspelled and just write it down short and sweet.
And I am short too. So it still fits.
My poems I Saw Beckett The Other Day and Italian Nuns have been translated and published in https://www.inkroci.com/culture_movie/ an on-line Italian culture and literature magazine. It has also published my new story Dorothea in the Land of Black and White Men
I will be giving a workshop at the Irish Writer’s Centre https://irishwriterscentre.ie/collections/all-courses/products/strength-of-character-workshop-with-orla-foyle on Strength of Character on the 15th of June 2019.
