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.
