‘. . . a writer of exceptional cognitive and emotional originality. She is certainly among the most gifted of the younger Irish poets.’
— Eilís Ní Dhuibhne, The Sunday Tribune
‘The obvious spirit of exhilaration in which these poems have been created is matched by excitement in the reader at encountering a voice that has come entirely into its own.’
— Sinead Morrissey, Metre
‘Groarke’s poems often have an air of simplicity . . . but their grounded, private acuteness, their silent insistence on discovering their own methods, makes them subtler and more complex.’
— Brian Philips, Poetry
