Scannal an Heipitítis C atá faoi chaibidil sa tsraith dánta sa chnuasach Fiacha Fola. Cruthaíonn an file leanúnachas scéaltach eisceachtúil ann nach bhfeictear go hiondúil ach san úrscéal. Diaidh ar ndiaidh, tuigtear don léitheoir nach iad gnátheachtraí an tsaoil a bhfuil cur síos á ndéanamh orthu sna dánta seo faoin ghrá, faoin bhreith, faoi chúraimí clainne agus faoi thinnis.

Dán ar dhán, cuireann an file an tragóid ina luí ar an léitheoir, go dtí go nochtar an fhírinne ghlan, thubaisteach.

Fiacha Fola is a sequence of poems which gives an account of the Hepatitis C scandal in Ireland. In this collection the poet has created the type of narrative thrust one expects to find only in a novel. Poem after poem the tragedy unfolds in the description of the everyday events of family life, love, birth and illness, slowly unveiling, without fanfare or self-pity, the brutal truth of a huge injustice visited upon the citizens of this country.

Fiacha Fola is a deeply moving book of poetry that reminds us of our humanity and our vulnerability.
