An Trodaí agus dánta eile – The Warrior and other poems is a bilingual poetry collection from Dairena Ní Chinnéide. In it, she introduces the persona of The Warrior / An Trodaí, a woman who is ‘lán de laigeacht agus fíochmhaireacht in aon turas’ ‘full of weakness and fierceness at once’. The Warrior is a woman of contrasts. She craves love but fears betrayal; she is defiant but seeks to be understood; she is a modern woman who appreciates the importance of tradition. Dairena is well known for her work with Raidió na Gaeltachta and this collection contains many references to her native Kerry, in particular an Blascaod Mór and Corca Dhuibhne.
