"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Limericks in Limerick

There was a young poet from Gort,
Who left all his limericks short.
He never could end
The four lines that he penned.

Calling all poets and writers!

The All Ireland ‘limericks’ Championship takes place Tues 9th Nov in The Loft Venue at The Locke Bar, George’s Quay Limerick…start time 8.00pm!

The slam will take the form of a two round contest (so bring at least two ‘limericks’) and the verse must strictly follow the ‘limerick’ formula, it must also be of the performers own construction.
The winners will be chosen by an appointed three person panel. The prize on offer is a trophy for the winner and two runner up prizes. If you want to participate, all you have to do is arrive on the night to the Locke Bar and give your name to the M.C. Alternatively you can send on your name to the limerickwriterscentre@gmail.com requesting inclusion. Admission is free.
(The limerick above appears in 'Newgrange my arse')


  1. Is there really a Gort? That's funny in itself. If I submmit one, can you read it for me?


  2. Hi Kat. Gort is in East Galway. Sadly, I will not be travelling to Limerick for the event!

  3. TFE, well, it fits. And it doesn't, if you know what I mean.

  4. Written the other week in honour of Corks favourite airborne onanist

    There once was some radio slime
    Who thought he himself so sublime
    Took pills, oh so silly
    Then got out his willy
    And proved what we knew all the time
