Wild Atlantic Words

I came third in The Wild Atlantic Words Poetry Competition with the poem Anadromous Vocabulary and it's published in this lovely anthology by the Hungry Hill Writers. It was the perfect excuse for a visit to the beautiful Castletownbere for the prize-giving ceremony with judge Breda Wall Ryan. It's always extra nice to receive an award from a poet whose work you especially admire. I was only sorry I hadn't my copy of "In A Hare's Eye" with me for her to sign. She has a fine publisher there too in Doire Press with John Walsh and Lisa Frank, based in Connemara.
