Anne Connolly is an Irish poet long settled in Scotland.

She is a former Chair and Makar (2014) of the Federation of Writers Scotland.


Her work is widely published and she has appeared at numerous Festivals including Strokestown, Féile na Bealtaine and StAnza 2019.


She believes that Poetry is music in its own right. 


Once upon a Quark (2019), her third collection from Red Squirrel Press, was described by Edinburgh’s former Makar Christine de Luca as funny, pithy, profound.


Anne loves performing her work and made it to the final of the BBC Fringe Slam –a real yippee moment!


Being a granny (even with social distancing) has been an amazingly happy experience and is a continuing inspiration.


Filíocht abú – Poetry forever!
