Description of practice/Biography

Aífe is a visual artist, journalist, storyteller, and poet living between Leitrim and Dublin.
In her work, Aífe aims to capture the multiplicity of Irish experiences in the modern world, and the tensions which exist between globalism and rurality. Her poetry, in particular, examines the sharp moment when the personal intersects with the political, dealing with themes of justice and obligation.
Her art and poetry has been displayed in Ballinamore's own Solas gallery and as part of Longford's Cruthu festival. Aífe has also performed her poetry with UCD Slam Poets. Her poems have been published in the Caveat Lector.
Her articles have been published by a variety of publications and many can be found online at the University Observer's website, the College Tribune's webiste, and on the Daily Edge.
