Listowel Writers’ Week Irish Poem of the Year
The Listowel Writers’ Week Irish Poem of the Year was inaugurated in 2016 and fulfilled a long-held ambition of the awards organisers to include poetry on the awards roster. The new award attracted a very substantial number of entries and looks set to become a long-term fixture. Listowel Writers’ Week, one of Ireland’s finest and longest running literary festivals, holds a cherished place in the hearts of all those who love Irish literature.
