Desmond O'Grady Poetry Competition

Hello dear poets and lovers of poetry,
on my last visit to Limerick, Ireland, an old friend of mine invited me to take part in the Desmond O'Grady Poetry competition and to invite all poets I know to do so as well. 
You can submit up to four poems until 31rst of October 2012. You find all information at www.desmondogrady.com.
Here are the lines that my friend Barney send me. If you know someone who might be interested - please feel free to inform them and send them the link as well! 

"It gives me great pleasure and I consider it a privilege to announce the Desmond O'Grady Poetry Competition.
I have always maintained that Desmond’s poetry is accessible to everyone, both the ordinary man or woman in the street, who just loves poetry for poetry sake, and to the high-brow academic, who looks much deeper into the technical working of the poem. It is with these sentiments that I am confident that the entries for this competition will come from poets of many different backgrounds.
I now therefore encourage all of you to visit our competition webpage at www.desmondogrady.com and submit your poems.
