Clifden Arts Festival is honoured to welcome back these two old friends of the Festival. They continue to produce poetry that touches the heart and lifts the spirit.

He taught creative writing at Hamburg University and was Drama Director at International School Hamburg. He's published eleven poetry collections, letters, drama, prose and poetry for young people. His work has been translated into German and Indonesian. His forthcoming collection 'Two Notes for Home' is to be published in September by Arlen House.
