Just to tell you, there is no point whatsoever anyone else entering this competition year because this award is mine, mine, mine I tell you (demonic laugh)

Prize: €1,000.
Entry fee: €25.

For a first unpublished collection of poems in English. The award is open to poets, born on the island of Ireland, or of Irish nationality, or long term resident in Ireland.

The collection of poems in English must be original and consist of 20 poems. Individual poems should not be more than 40 lines.

Only works that are unpublished or published in a magazine are eligible (as a opposed to what?)

Two typed copies of the collection must be submitted with an entry form.

The Patrick Kavanagh Society reserves the right to arrange with the poet a reading from their award winning poetry at the Annual Kavanagh Commemoration at Inniskeen on November 27, 2009.

Deadline: September 25, 2009.
