About niamh clune

I was born in Dublin, back in the days when it was full of poets, mystics, philanderers, drinkers, passionate speech-makers and wanna-be-Joyceans. Dublin was enshrouded then in a pall of Catholicism ~ Church and State were like Siamese Twins. I was a rebel ~ in the sense that I couldn't help but think for myself. There were Maoists, musicians and academics all trying to do the same. Gatherings were frenetic, passionate, yet often tempered by some of the gentle 'aul' folk not made bigots by religion or politics but liberated by both into realising the gentle and constant passing of all things. They were of my grand-parent's generation, sweet breaths of peat-soaked air, demonstrative of the tremendous inner peace and calm that comes from knowing who you are and where you come from. These days, I am a writer, poet, environmental campaigner, and musician ~ among other things. I gained a Ph.D in Acquiring Wisdom Through The Imagination, and I love teaching and sharing my inspiration. These days, I am also writing children's books. I believe that reading to little ones, even before they can understand words, teaches them to associate books with love and affection. Find my books on my page.

    I remember Niamh when you were featured on Tahlia Newland’s site. The post was brilliant on Metaphysical Literature. The sound of the titles of her books make me think I am in need of checking them out. Not only would I like to read them but they sound like they would also make for some surpurses in stockings of the hopefully kindle kind on a certain holiday morn or eve. I am definitely going to check them out and Tahlia’s site again also. Thank you for your post & the light that it lit in my head. You always have perfect timing, Niamh. a.l. j.k. jennifer ;-)

    Thanks for the feature, Niamh. It’s heartwarming to hear people say they want to check out my books. I’m still trying to find my readers, and you’ve elegantly written something that gets to the essence of what I’m about. You’ve even inspired me!

        You deserve all 6 stars. You should make a page for all your awards rather than putting them on your home page. Treat them like posting an illustrations or photos. j.k ps. just ask if you want to work on the badge posting.
