Gregory O'Donoghue Poetry Competition Results

And the results of the 2012 Gregory O'Donoghue International Poetry Competition have been announced and are available here. Americans in first and third places with fellow-Doghouse poet Gerry Boland in second place. Well done!

Nice to see the lists of commended and highly commended entries as well. The winner, Judith Barrington from Oregon, USA has poems included in both lists as well.

Not many familiar names in those lists but they do include Seamus Harrington from Cork, who I met in Galway a couple of years ago, Eleanor Hooker recently published by Daedalus Press, Noel Monahan who wrote a great blurb for my Doghouse collection, Valerie Sirr from Dublin and Cliff Wedgbury from Cork.

Well done all!!
