Macha – R.M. Francis


Macha is a warrior goddess in ancient Irish and Celtic Folklore, associated with land, fertility, war and horses. One tale tells of how, while pregnant, she raced the King’s horses, giving birth to truth and modesty as she won, and cursing the men of Ulster in her agony.

R. M. Francis is a lecturer in Creative and Professional Writing at the University of Wolverhampton. He’s the author of novels, Bella and The Wrenna and poetry collection, Subsidence. He is poet in residence for the Black Country Geological society. His next book, The Chain Coral Chorus, is a series of poems and essays that track this work.
