I’m absolutely gobsmacked to be included among the four shortlisted poets for Listowel Writer’s Week Irish Poem of the Year at the An Post Irish Book Awards 2018. The shortlists in all the categories were announced at a special event at the GPO last Thursday night. The awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday 27th November at the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road. I’d like to thank Listowel Writers’ Week for sponsoring this award and also my publisher Salmon Poetry who also publish John W. Sexton.
