Meet your Laois People
Meet your Laois People #1
The Laois People will be running a series of ‘Meet your Laois People’ where our readers and viewers will learn more about other local people. First up is a ‘blow-in’ (like myself Ed.)
Liam Ryan was born in Donohill, Tipperary in 1955 but now lives in Laois where he has his own architectural business. He is married with two grown-up daughters. Before Doghouse Books published his debut collection of poems Touching Stones in May 2009, he had poems and reviews published in publications such as The Shop, Revivial, and The Moth. He won third prize at Strokestown International Poetry Competition in 2012 and has been included in several anthologies, including the Dublin anthology If Ever You Go. What’s Happening in the Shade is his third collection of poems and will be launched in the Abbeyleix Manor Hotel at the end of this month.
