This weeks guest poet is Limerick born Tim Cunningham
Tim Cunningham was born in Limerick in 1942. Educated at C.B.S., Limerick, and Birkbeck College, London, he worked with a brewery, local government, the National Coal Board and in education.
He has lived in Limerick, Tipperary, Dublin, Trowbridge, London, Newark (Delaware), and, presently, Billericay.
Tim has three collections published: Don Marcelino's Daughter (Peterloo Poets, 2001), Unequal Thirds (Peterloo Poets, 2006) and Kyrie (Revival Press, 2008).
'Ever since I met Tim Cunningham and his poems at an Arvon course in 1984, I have urged him to get a volume together for publication. I'm delighted that he has now done so, and hope readers will enjoy his work as much as I have.' Fleur Adcock
'Tim Cunningham's poems are as various and fascinating as the animals in Noah's Ark. He has a most musical ear, a keen eye and an open heart. His aim is true. He writes beautiful poems.' Adrian Mitchell
