2011was a year of ups and downs winning the Drogheda Poetry Grand Slam and losing the Poet of Fingal Cup, Getting a Highly Commended Certificate in Dromineer and losing in The Battle of the Books, getting published in The Stony Thursday for the second year in a row and in the Moth Magazine. Memorable readings in McHugh's Pub in Drogheda, Tullaghanstown Bog and the College Green Hotel for Poetry Ireland. and the publication of my 13th book,'Famine Trilogy'
2012? well who knows, I would hope to see my book which is with The History Press published and maybe another collection of poems and I would hope to pen a few decent poems and this of course is the most important aspiration of all. The Meath Writers Circle has now grown to an unwieldy 20 members all based around a core group which includes Mick Sheils, Frank Murphy, Willie Hodgins and Paul Martin
