|Â Â "After a career in business, I completed the Poetry Studies MA at Mater Dei in Dublin, where I focused on the poetry of James Wright, Charles Bernstein, and others. During 2012, I was nominated for a Pushcart Prize, was runner-up in the Cork Literary Review Manuscript Competition, short-listed for the Listowel Writers' Week Poetry Collection Competition and placed third in The Joy of Sex competition. Over the past two years I have had 50 poems published by various journals in Ireland, England, the US, Australia and Mexico. I am a member of the Hibernian Writers' Group."
