Irish Writing


Young Writer Delegate

Ava Lynch is a bilingual poet who was lucky enough to run 2 events and a poetry competition with a group of friends (Ó Bhéal na mBan) for this years’ Poetry Ireland Day. Ava is a second year Commerce and French Student and has spent time as a Writer in Residence as Gaeilge. Ava has a love for Gaeilge and all things Irish and writes lighthearted poems (often on serious subjects) that are uniquely Irish but strive to be universally applicable. Ava’s work has been published in the Quarryman, Motley Magazine, in literary magazines and some local newspapers. Ava’s writing life started in her Junior Cert year when her English teacher chose her poem to read at her wedding. Ava learnt her Irish in school (an English language school with a strong Irish-language tradition). Ava is one of four writers selected for the Irish Writers’ Centre Young Writer Delegates Programme at West Cork Literary Festival 2021.
