'Men with Guns' Shorlisted for Fish Poetry Prize


My poem 'Men with Guns' has been shortlisted for the 2021 Fish Poetry Prize, judged by former US Poet Laureate, Billy Collins. More info here. The piece is a bit of family folklore, recounting my grandfather's experiences during the Larne Gun Running of 1914.
