He has been editor of Poetry Ireland Review and served on the board of Poetry Ireland for eleven years. From 2003 to 2007, he co-edited three anthologies of Canadian – Irish Poetry. In 2008, Memorial University awarded him an Honorary Doctorate in Laws

“He leaves many other poets looking watery and confined
to limited forms, like people who never stir out of the house”
– Seán Dunne
