Let’s meet a few more of the women who are part of Women Aloud Fermanagh: Monica Corish, Helen Daniel and Ruth Leonard.

WA Monica Corish

Monica Corish: Monica lives in Kinlough, Co Leitrim. She is an award-winning writer of poetry, short stories and memoir. She was 2014 / 2015 SPARK writer-in-residence at the Leitrim Observer. Her second full collection “A Dying Language” will be published by the Irish Hospice Foundation Press in May 2016. More details about her writing and her writing workshops can be found at www.monicacorish.ie.


 WA helen_daniel

Helen Daniel: She trained as a nurse and then moved sideways into mental health work. After exciting adventures in various arts and crafts, she has returned to her first love – writing. Egged on by fellow wordsmiths, she reflects, rants and eulogises about ‘life as we know it’.


WA ruth_leonard

Ruth Leonard: She writes poetry & cookery books. Originally from Dublin, she attends Fermanagh writers, which she enjoys thoroughly.

She is looking forward to her first poetry publication in the coming weeks, titled “Hope.”
