The Wild Atlantic Poet

It’s my first time asking for a little help.
Now I’m just about to launch my poetry 
book which contains 120 of my selected 
i had hoped to get funding from the arts
council but I was to late in applying for
funding as their last day for applications 
was the last day in May 2020.

Also the quote I got did not include VAT
and now I’m faced with this added cost.
i had 43137362_1595531865777099_r.jpeg
intended to have a launch night to
promote the book but with the Covid 19. 
I do not think this is feasible at this time. 
what I’m asking is for people to donate
what they can to make my lifetime 
dream a reality.
what I offer in return is if a person
donates € 15 I will send you a signed
copy FOC.Including postage 
If a person donates €10 I will send an A4 sized poem of your choice framed. FOC
including postage. 
even if you cannot donate this amount 
please give what you can afford.
If you cannot donate I’d like if you could
share this on your page 
thank you sincerely 
kindest regards John o Donnell
