Cuisle Poetry Festival - Poetry Slam at White House

Miceál Kearney from Galway wins inaugural Cuisle Performance Poetry Slam

Performance poet Miceál Kearney from Galway last Friday took First Prize at
The Inaugural Grand Slam of the CUISLE Poetry Festival in The White House in Limerick.

With two brilliant poetic performances, displaying great timing, voice control, humour and audience command, Miceál came out the clear winner among the 19 entrants.

Miceál is now on his way to Brighton in May '07 to continue his environmental work.

Gordon Hewitt from the Belfast Poets' Group took a very deserving second place, with Limerick poet Chris Collins taking third.

Congratulations to Dominc Taylor and Barney Sheehan on the organization
and mighty success of the Cuisle Inaugural Grand Slam!
A very high standard has been set and great encouragement given to the poets
who came from every corner of Ireland - and from England, Scotland and the USA.

We all look forward to a long run of the Cuisle Grand Slam.
