Elaine Feeney was born in Galway in 1979. She teaches English at St. Patrick’s College. She has been writing poetry since her teens. Elaine has published her work in various magazines including The Shop and Nth Position. Her first collection ‘Indiscipline’ was a joint publication with poet Dave Lordan in 2007 by Maverick Press.
