'About the Place' Poetry Brunch

Una Mannion lives in County Sligo. She is the winner of the Doolin short story prize, Ambit Fiction Prize, Cuirt Short Story prize, Allingham short fiction prize and the Hennessy Emerging poetry award. Her work has been published in The Lonely Crowd, Bare Fiction, The Irish Times, Ambit and The Incubator.

Maureen Boyle is a poet who *has won various awards including the Ireland Chair of Poetry Prize in 2007 and the Strokestown International Poetry Prize in the same year. In 2013 she won the Fish Short Memoir Prize. Her second collection of poetry, *The Work of a Winter, has just been published by Arlen House.
