Two Poetry Announcements

I'd like to take this moment to make two related announcements.

First, I have for some weeks been a part of the committee of the Cuisle International Poetry Festival, the annual event that transforms Limerick into a Mecca for versification. Headed by City Arts Officer Sheila Deegan, the committee includes Aosdána member Ciaran O'Driscoll, noted poet Mark Whelan, and tireless arts supporter and educator Bertha McCullough. Each member has extensive experience in the area; I am proud to have been asked to join their esteemed company.
