Colm Breathnach

File, úrscéalaí agus aistritheoir é Colm Breathnach. Tá ocht gcinn de chnuasaigh filíochta agus rogha dánta curtha amach aige. Bhronn An Foras Cultúrtha Gael-Mheiriceánach ‘Duais an Bhuitléirigh’ air sa bhliain 1999 agus bronnadh an phríomhdhuais do chnuasach filíochta air i gComórtais Liteartha an Oireachtais ceithre huaire. I gcomhar leis an Dr. Andrea Nic Thaidhg, dhein sé aistriúchán ar Katz und Maus, úrscéal le Günter Grass, faoin teideal Cat agus Luch (Coiscéim, 2000). Foilsíodh an chéad úrscéal aige, Con Trick “An Bhalla Bháin” (Cló Iar-Chonnacht), saothar meitificseanúil a ghnóthaigh duais aitheantais san Oireachtas, sa bhliain 2009. Sa bhliain 2011 chuaigh sé ar thréimhse chónaithe le Cumann Scríbhneoirí Shanghai agus in 2012 bhí sé ina scríbhneoir cónaithe sa tSlóivéin agus ina aoi-léitheoir ag Féile Litríochta Vilenica. Chomh maith leis sin, léigh sé ag féilte litríochta in Albain, sa Ghearmáin, san Iodáil, sa Fhrainc agus sna Stáit Aontaithe. Foilsíodh eagrán Rómáinise dá chnuasach An Fear Marbh sa bhliain 1999 faoin teideal Bărbatul fără viaţă (Ars Longa, Iasi, 1999) agus aistríodh dánta leis go Béarla, Gáidhlig, Gearmáinis, Iodáilis, Fraincis, Slóivéinis agus Sínis chomh maith. Ceapadh é ina scríbhneoir cónaithe i gColáiste Phádraig, Droim Conrach, i dtús na bliana 2015. D'fhoilsigh LeabhairComhar an cnuasach filíochta is déanaí uaidh, Tírdhreacha, i ndeireadh na bliana 2015.
