I began to write poetry around six years ago after becoming inspired at a poetry night in Enniskillen, from then things grew.
It was not until some two years ago when I thought about getting my work into print, this however proved to be challenging, as Fermanagh being quite a rural county has no printers.
That fact did not stop me, I still held onto my goal and the fact that as I looked and was rejected in terms of having my work published, my number of poems grew.
The poetry is varied, with some being observations embellished with imagination, drawing from local beauty spots and places and ideas which often go over-looked and under-appreciated. The title The Colebrooke Collection I found to be apt; it is named after the river that flows through my hometown of Maguiresbridge, and in memory of the times I would sit on the banks of it, reading and writing.
As of writing it is for sale in Ken Ramsey’s Frame shop in the Buttermarket, Enniskillen, and it will be available in both shops in Maguiresbridge amongst others.
