The Limerick Writers’ Centre, Global Limerick and the Savoy Hotel combined last Saturday night to bring a feast of Limericks to Limerick. The annual Bring Your Limericks to Limerick International Poetry Competition took place in front of a packed audience at the Savoy Hotel. The eventual winner was Darragh Roche, fittingly a native of Limerick, with his ditty about ‘Brexit’. Runners up were, in second place, Roger Marsh from the UK and an Irish language entry from Sean O Riodhachain came in third.

The winning Limerick was:
Our British Friends voted for Brexit
And nobody knows what is Nexit
Will the EU now fall?
Will Trump get his wall?
Give an Englishman a country, he Fexit
