Four new poems in Irish magazines

I’m delighted to start 2016 with quite a busy line-up of publications.

I have two poems out this week in the handsome Poetry Ireland Review (below – cover art by Niamh Flanagan):  After all these night buses, a fanciful travelogue of sorts, and On the madhouse grounds with Alexis, about youthful trespassings in my hometown.

Issue 117

And, just fresh of the day, two more poems can be found online in the new issue of SouthwordOur Lady of the Clouds, patroness of bored clerks and Threesome. I’m not going to say anything about those, as anyone interested can just click on and read them. in addition to the poems, you can read the winning stories of the Seán Ó Faoláin Competition 2015, judged by Danielle McLaughlin.

I’m pretty chuffed, because the poetry editor for Southword at the moment is Matthew Sweeney, a poet I’m quite a fan of.
