I won second prize at Dromineer in 2008 and was very impressed with the festival and the place. One of the hidden gems of Ireland. Must enter this year.

I met Dave Lordan some years ago when I had my first poem published in Crannog - he had one in the same issue and had just won the Patrick Kavanagh collection prize. His Invitation to a Sacrifice has just been published.
