Peter Goulding Launch


Peter Goulding is launching a collection of his humorous poetry “A Flash of Orange” next Tuesday 24th March from 7.00 – 8.30pm in Blanchardstown Library, Dublin 15 (opposite UCI) The book has a foreword by RTE’s John Creedon and a cover design by Paul Fegan. Peterwas a prizewinner in last year's Swift Satire Competition which we organised for the Swift Festival in Trim. You can read his poem here. We also published one of his "serious" poems in Boyne Berries 4. He attended and read on the night.

His humorous verse has appeared in newspapers, books and periodicals throughout Ireland and the UK. He won the prestigious Strokestown Political Satire Poetry Competition in 2008 and is on this year's shortlist again. He was formally poet in residence on RTE’s The Creedon Show
and he is also has a regular column in The Community Voice newspaper, for whom he also writes the Arts pages. A keen supporter of League of Ireland football, he is poet in residence at Shelbourne FC.

Unfortunately I won't be able to attend as it clashes with our Meath/Cavan LitLab meeting but best of luck Peter.
