Padraic Fallon Memorial Poetry Competition

The Great and the Good in Athenry are commemorating their local scribe with a poetry competition.

Deadline: 14th April 2008
Winner to be announced in May.
Judge: Ciaran O’Driscoll - a Limerick based poet and member of Aos Dana who has published numerous poetry collections, most recently The Old Women of Maggione.
Poems must be 30 lines or fewer. Ciaran is writing a judge's report. I find these well worth reading.
Fee: 5 Euro per poem
Prizes: 500 Euro, 300 Euro, 100 Euro and ten 10 Euro book tokens.

Do read the conditions are they are very specific and you wouldn't want to throw away 5 Euro for the wrong typeface. The entry form is on the Charlie Byrne website but it says the deadline is March 14th whereas the form says both March 14th and April 14th. I'm banking on the April 14th as that was in another newsletter.
