Reviews 

“In line with ancient nature verse and much Irish poetry (male), Ní Chuilleanáin does not look for cosmopolitan themes, but takes particular facts and turns them again and again until new perspectives are derived.”
– The American Poetry Review 

“Her voice and technique are so solid, so secure, and contain deep echoes of older poetry, as Irish verse tends to do.”
– Robert Hudson, WorkingPoet.com

“All through the book, she presents a world which she marks out, measures and makes known. The ‘acts and monuments’ of time, memory, myth and history flesh out the ghosts of her world. . . . The Second Voyage is a joy to read, a model of craft and vision and a quietly original poetry which does not jettison tradition.”
– Philip Casey, Cencratus
