Pádraig Ó Tuama is a poet and theologian based in Belfast. Formerly leader of the Corrymeela Community, (Ireland’s oldest peace and reconciliation witness dedicated to transforming conflict through human encounter), Pádraig’s interests encompass poetry, religion, conflict and storytelling. His work has been published by Canterbury Press (2012, 2013, 2017) and Hodder (2015) and has received critical acclaim from circles of poetry, psychology and religion. In 2011, he, with his partner Paul Doran, founded the Tenx9 storytelling project (tenx9.com), a project that has spread to fourteen cities across Europe, Australia and North America.
Pádraig’s latest work continues to challenge, provoke and advocate that a better world is not just possible but essential. Honesty, empathy, compassion are the hallmarks of this work from a poet who accepts that he too has a responsibility to help make the world a fairer and better place. — the late Martin McGuinness
Pádraig Ó Tuama is an extraordinary person, whose influence extends quietly and gracefully across the world. His poetry bears these same qualities and brings him close. It is a gift to us all. — Krista Tippett. Creator and host of ‘On Being’
