Tony O’Dwyer’s poetry has been published in a wide variety of journals. He has won a number of poetry competitions and was runner-up in the Patrick Kavanagh Award. He is co-editor and publisher of Crannóg magazine. His first collection was published by Bradshaw Books, Cork in 2003. Twenty-one years later it is now re-issued in jacketed hardback edition with a preface by the author. His next collection is due from Salmon Poetry in 2025.

‘This is poetry of great wisdom and maturity. Technically, there are astonishingly well-finished poems here ... The work combines experience, thought and very strong as well as very poignant passion ... it is the product of a truly gifted and particularly poetic intelligence.’    

                                        Thomas McCarthy Cork Literary Review

‘… sensitive, perceptive, sensuous and emotional. He makes his own music, paints his own pictures. Retaining the wonderment of childhood, his poems speak from a deep level of consciousness. He sculpts shapes, creates textures and colours, opens our eyes to a new way of seeing, a new imaginative experience.’                          

                                       Patricia Burke Brogan, author of Eclipsed

‘… has a sure-footed approach and is well tuned to the natural world. There is also a lyricism to this poetry and when this is matched or married to form … it is very successful.’                            

                                         Joan McBreen, author of Map and Atlas

‘… O’Dwyer proves he can write in a fresh way about even the most time-worn subjects.’                                       

                                                  Kevin Higgins, Galway Advertiser
