Salmon Poetry will publish his first collection, Waiting for Saint Brendan, in May 2012. He has received several grants and fellowships, both in the USA and Ireland, the most important being the one from the Arts Council of Ireland which let him write full time for a year, and made him pursue his dream of being a writer.
