Posts Tagged ‘Patrick Kavanagh Award’

Poet Helena Nolan has won this year’s Patrick Kavanagh Award for an unpublished poetry collection. Great news for Helena, who was last year’s runner-up with Kissing the Ceiling.¬†She’s won this year with The Bone House, and accepted the award in Inniskeen on Friday night. The organisers brought things forward by a couple of months this year to avoid the snow and ice that made getting home from last year’s ceremony a bit hairy.

Previous Patrick Kavanagh Award winners have been Celia de Freine, Paul Durcan, Peter Sirr, Sinead Morrissey – a solid company. I’d love to see a collection of Helena’s in print – I’m hoping this is what 2012 will bring.
