Sinead O’Brien

Sinead O’Brien is an Irish poet and performer based in London. Originally from Limerick ‘a kind of grey industrial place with an a certain poetry to it’, Sinead’s work captures the everyday and the in-between in a way that transcends genre.

Writing from her own observations, her influences can be found in the realism of Mark E. Smith of The Fall and the works of literary icons such Frank O’Hara, W.B. Yeats, Joan Didion, Albert Camus.  ‘I am inspired by an honest face on the train, a rhythm, a melody, a feeling, or it can hit me as nothing at all- a vacuum, limbo!  Every detail matters’.
