'The First Five Storms' was a winner in the 2016 New Poets' Prize Competition, judged by Helen Mort.
The First Five Storms' has remarkable range and imaginative depth, from Fibonacci to Loch na Fuaiche, from the small detail of 'thawed streams like cracks in the bone' to a panorama of the whole 'lifting land'. These are poems that excavate, honour and renew.
