Burning Bush2.. Irish Times..Featured Poet International...

A poem about my late grandaunt's house, out now in Burning Bush2 ...
3 poems about my habitat out tomorrow in the Irish Times New Irish Writing section...
and I've been selected to be the American short poetry journal, Shot Glass Journal,'s Featured Poet International, more on that when it goes live.. hopefully September.
Also I'm about to start reading through the entries for this year's New Roscommon Writing Award, which I am hugely looking forward to. Judging could be hard. We are swimming in talent here, must come with the rain..
Oh, and also, been put on the very long list for the Over The Edge New Writer of the Year competition, so watch this space! UPDATE: made it to the shortlist! delighted!
Also update: the judging is done, we will be having a celebration and prize giving on Wednesday afternoon in Roscommon library. It was so hard to pick just ten shortlisted pieces, it took dozens of reads -of each of 99 entries- to whittle it down. Really inspiring stuff.
