Our ever popular schools poetry competition will be judged by poet Eileen Sheehan. We’re, as always, looking forward to seeing lots of entries and enjoying the wonderful poetry written by classes 3rd to 6th in Tipperary primary schools.

Eileen Sheehan lives in Killarney. She has read at festivals in Ireland and abroad including The Shanghai Literary Festival; the ACIS Conference in Davenport, Iowa; Writers’ Week Listowel and The Cork International Poetry Festival. Anthology publications include The Watchful Heart: A New Generation of Irish Poets (editor Joan McBreen/ Salmon Poetry); Best Loved Poems: Favourite Poems from the South of Ireland (editor Gabriel Fitzmaurice with photographs by John Reidy/Curragh Press) and The Deep Heart’s Core: Irish Poets Revisit a Touchstone Poem (editors Eugene O’Connell & Pat Boran/Dedalus Press). Her collections are Song of the Midnight Fox and Down the Sunlit Hall (Doghouse Books). Her third collection, The Narrow Way of Souls (Salmon Poetry) was launched in May 2018.
