David Daibhidh Eyre
I was born in North Lanarkshire in 1972 and started learning Gaelic at Edinburgh University. For most of my life, I’ve stayed in Glasgow, working in journalism and the media – but now I’m in Largs. My poems have appeared in lots of periodicals and collections and I was Poet in Residence at the StAnza International Poetry Festival 2018, with support from The Edwin Morgan Trust. I also writes prose. In 2015 my first short novel ‘Glainne’ was published by Sandstone Press and my first novel ‘Cailèideascop’ was published by Luath Press in 2017, both with support from the Gaelic Books Council. I’m currently working on my third book 'Glas'.
