Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award

Monaghan Patrick kavanagh Grave 2

I was delighted to hear that my first full collection of poetry (tentatively titled In America) was one of three runners-up for the Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award 2017.

Warmest congratulations to the winner Ruth Timmons, and to my fellow runners-up Victoria Kennefick and Ben McGuire.

Previous winners of the award have included Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Paul Durcan, and Sinéad Morrissey.
