Longlisted for the Cinnamon Press Debut Poetry Collection Prize 2016

I received some lovely news today, the last day of January 2017, that I have been included in the
long-list for the #Cinnamon Press Debut Poetry Collection 2016.

I feel a trip to #Wales is in the offing.


Shannonside Winter Music Festival - Bunratty

I was delighted to be invited to read as a guest poet as part of a group of poets from Ó Bhéal at the 2017 Shannonside Winter Music Festival in Bunratty on Saturday 21st Jan.

We had a nice time listening to a variety of different types of music early and late on Saturday.  The reading itself, on Saturday evening, was well attended with a good number of poets travelling from around the country to participate in the Ó Bhéal 5 Words and Open Mic.

Thanks to @Paul Casey for arranging the reading.
