Made it down to Pallas again this year for the Goldsmith Poetry Competition where Peter Fallon was the judge and guest reader on the day. The winner of the competition was Sighle Meehan with Mike Casey picking up second and myself in third. Hope I got those spellings right! Another person to get a mention there was Anne Connolly all the away from Edinburgh via Northern Ireland. Also talking to Bianca Fachel and partner from Germany. Bianca is a singer songwriter from Brazil. Photos to follow in the next few days. Sighle Meehan, I believe, was the winner of the Poems for Patience in Galway University Hospital this year. The weather was more than a bit blustery but the rain held off most of the time!
