Fiona O’Connor

Eithne’s creative writing was often inspired by the readings and discussions with the ELF (Experiencing Life’s Fullness) and Mount Oliver groups; these were a loose amalgam of disparate friends who met regularly in the mid 1990’s to read poetry and mythology, ranging from Greek to Celtic to moden writing, whatever was suggested by a member.

Her notebooks are full of referencess to these reading. Many unfinished songs and poems are there with additions and changes, honing her writings.
