The Writers' Room bar upstairs in the Brian Boru pub was overflowing for the reading and we had two solid hours of poetry. The audience were lovely (and patient) and we all enjoyed the evening very much. Thanks to all our supporters and to the organisers of Phizzfest.
Ann Dempsey won the Phizzfest Poetry Award and you can read her winning poem here.
