This is a book of 235 Limericks featuring cities, towns and villages throughout the 32 counties of Ireland. It was written to raise some much needed funds for Barnardos Ireland. Barnardos’ mission is to deliver services and work with families, communities and their partners to transform the lives of vulnerable children who are affected by adverse childhood experiences.
While Limericks are usually rude, mine are not (or certainly they are not intended to be!); some of them, I hope, are humorous, others are silly, a few are serious and the rest are whatever you may make of them! None of the characters I mention are real!
I started writing poetry when I was a teenager in the 1970s but have only recently returned to this form of writing. In the rather long interval of almost 50 years between then and now I have written or co-written many songs. Most of these have been in Gaeilge, Ireland's native language and I have had success at national and international level.
Writing is a past-time which I have once again more time to devote to since my retirement from my full-time job as a public sector pensions management consultant. This book of Limericks was written over a period of 2 months in the summer of 2020
