Description   Irish poet Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill in May 1986. This was a promotional shot taken for the RTÉ Television programme 'Motives', a series of six programmes in which Kevin O'Kelly interviewed people about what motivated them, what values they held and how they felt about the Ireland of the 1980s. The episode featuring Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill was broadcast on 16 July 1986.

She has published several collections of poetry in both Irish and English including 'Feis' (1991) and 'The Astrakhan Cloak' (1992).
