Born in South Kensington and raised by Irish parents in Pimlico, London. Not so much a place to live and grow up, more a state of mind.
I'm a cynical Chelsea fan (see my poems) and half a season ticket holder.
Thanks to the continued support and to the editors of this blinding site, who also checked my spelling and grammar days in the early days of my posting. My poems have appeared in magazines, books and newspapers. I'm also led to believe there are poems of mine out there on various football blogs and websites as well.
Prior to my becoming semi retired, before which I worked for many years as a printer, I produced and self published two books of poems with all monies made being donated to a registered homeless charity in London's Camden Town : The Aisling Return to Ireland Project. Said books are out of print now, but I'm planning on writing a new one some time soon.
Do check out:

Should you (the reader) wish to use any of my poems from this site for reproduction elsewhere, I do insist you obtain my written permission.
You can contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org
I do also ask that you allow me to edit the poem and that you pay a nominal fee to be agreed, to a charity of my choice/or to this site toward it's upkeep, prior to any use.

Stay well, be lucky and keep smiling
