Pádraig J. Daly

Pádraig J. Daly (born 1943) is a contemporary Irish poet.

Pádraig J. Daly was born in Dungarvan, County Waterford and is now working as an Augustinian priest in Dublin. He has published several collections of poetry, among them "The Last Dreamers: New & Selected Poems" (1999) and "The Other Sea" (2003), as well as his translations from the Italian of Edoardo Sanguineti, "Librett"o (1999) and Paolo Ruffilli, "Joy and Mourning" (reissued 2007). Daly's translation was the first Sanguineti book to be rendered into English. According to the publishers, Dedalus Press/Dufour Editions, Daly accepted the difficult task of translating Libretto "because he finds Sanguineti's poetry so lifeaffirming, and because he believes that even the poorest translation may lead people to read more of him." [http://www.utdallas.edu/alta/publications/ABR/ABR5.2.pdf] His latest collection of poems is "Clinging to the Myth" (2007) in which he refelects on grief and personal bereavement and uses the voices of 18th century Gaelic poetry to respond to the challenges of a post-Christian Ireland. As well as broadcasting on RTÉ radio, some of Daly’s works have been translated into Italian for broadcast on Italian radio [ [http://www.munsterlit.ie/Munster%20Lit/Munster%20writers/Padraig%20Daly.html Home Page ] ] . His work has been described by fellow poet Michael O'Dea as reminiscent of the poems of another clergyman, RS Thomas [ [http://odeamichael.blogspot.com/2008/01/pdraig-j-daly-and-rs-thomas.html Poetry and Miscellaneous Y
