Desmond O'Grady Poetry Competition

Fancy a Trip to Limerick?

White House Limerick Poetry presents the Desmond O'Grady Poetry Competition, open to all poets from all around the world.


Each poet can submit up to three poems.
Poems can be in English or Irish language and must be unpublished.
Free to Enter.

Deadline: 31st October 2012

Judge: Gabriel Fitzmaurice

A shortlist of 40 poems will be selected by the judges and author poets are invited to read them during November 2012 (10 poems per evening) at the White House Limerick Poetry Open Mic that takes place every Wednesday at White House Bar in Limerick, Ireland. Poets that cannot come to the live readings, due to distance or other impediments, can read their poems in video conference over the internet or can submit a recorded video or, if they are technology shy, can nominate someone to read in their place.

Judges will select 10 finalists that are invited to read their poems at the Final Competition Celebration at the beginning of December in Limerick. During this, the winner will be presented with Desmond O'Grady Perpetual Trophy.
