Be they delicate couplets, which have become a signature form, or the extended narratives at which he is adept, Tom French’s poems are immediately recognizable as his and his only.

Tom French was born in Kilkenny in 1966 and raised across the border in Tipperary. He graduated from National University of Ireland, Galway and the University of Limerick.

He received bursaries in literature from An Chomhairle Ealaíon/The Arts Council, Ireland in 1999 and 2009, and his work was awarded the inaugural Ted McNulty Prize. His first collection Touching the Bones (Gallery Press, 2001) was awarded the Forward Prize for First Collection 2002. The Gallery Press has also published The Fire Step (2009) and Midnightstown (2014). His latest collection The Way to Work is due for publication in May 2016.

He lives with his family close to the coast of County Meath where he earns his living in the County library service. He received the O’Shaughnessy Award for Poetry in 2016.
