All Ireland ‘limericks’ Slam Championship

Calling all poets and writers! The All Ireland ‘limericks’ Championship takes place Tues 9th Nov in The Loft Venue at The Locke Bar, George’s Quay Limerick…start time 8.00pm!

The slam will take the form of a two round contest (so bring at least two ‘limericks’) and the verse must strictly follow the ‘limerick’ formula, it must also be of the performers own construction.
The winners will be chosen by an appointed three person panel. The prize on offer is a trophy for the winner and two runner up prizes.

If you want to participate, all you have to do is arrive on the night to the Locke Bar and give your name to the M.C. Alternatively you can send on your name to the
limerickwriterscentre@gmail.com requesting inclusion.

We will be delighted to hear from you and your letter will be acknowledged. Once your name is on the list you will be called on the night with everybody else to make your contribution.

Admission is free.

What is a Limerick?
To be a Limerick, a verse MUST have: Five lines. Lines one, two, and five MUST rhyme.
Lines three and four MUST rhyme. A good Limerick will have a clever, unanticipated punch line as line five. A good Limerick will not be insipid or pointless. A good Limerick often has puns, word play, eccentric spelling, or some other witty feature.
