It's Official

It didn't come easy, indeed only after forty awards and prizes, getting published in just about all the so called reputable publications and a first collection with Lapwing Belfast but when it did come it was welcome.  I have now gained official status as a poet, which is why I will be joining Poetry Ireland's  WIS scheme in the new year.

Congratulations Tommy. Dempsy's biggest mistake, he didn't name a street after you.

  3. I can't be letting Mick get in ahead of me all the time. Have to have a word with the "Listening Stations?". Congratulations on that Tommy! Hope to see you next Thursday.
