Who I am

My Name is Pat Fitzgerald I grew up in the town of Charleville (Rath Luirc) in North County Cork (on the boundary between Counties Cork and Limerick in the Republic of Ireland.  I have lived in Ballincollig, west of Cork City.

I started writing Poetry when I was in my early 20’s, but never kept a record of my poetry for a number of years. My earlier poetry were without any form or rhyme and I never had any confidence in my writing atthat point.  I studied English Literature in the late 90’s as an adult when the chance to do so arose.   While studying, I became inspired by the writings of John Donne 1572 -1631, at which point my poetry began to take a form and style that I was happy with.


Within this Blog I have found a place where I write down some thoughts, Poetry and maybe on a very rare occasion a Short story.  But the content for the most part will be and is Poetry where I will at times experiment and work at various aspects of my writing.

My poetry will include a variety of Poetry which may vary in styles and rhyming patterns, also I havebegun to work on composing sonnets which I have worked on styles to find a rhyming style etc that I am more relaxed with. In time it is my hope to find a style of sonnets that I like and enjoy writing in.

I write a number of spiritual poetry, where I like to disguise most of the usual content often found in such spiritual poetry.  I also enjoy writing what I call and term for myself Social and social based poetry, where I like to highlight what I see within society from Lonliness to Poor, homelessness and How people in general appear to act and react to various situations.  Also I write on the usual topics such as Love and Loss. I welcome any and all feedback from readers and enjoy their coments on them.



Within the last number of years I was introduced to photography by my Daughters and I will also occasionally  include in blog posts. My photographs are usually of Landscape, animals or other topics of my choosing, very rarely are of any individuals with the exception of family.

My photography will not be aimed at photo shots of people in general but on other areas etc and basically experimenting and learning more of photography.

  2. Pat, I really enjoy reading your poems and would love to be able to go back to the beginning of your poetry postings on WP. Might you have an interest in having an Archive for your poems on your poetry page? Similar to what I have on my blog. It’s just a widget that creates a chronological Archive. I would really love to be able to share your older poems with followers if you have an interest? WP Customer Service is always happy to help with this kind of stuff. Let me know what you think about this – chucklindholm@hotmail.com 😁😊✨👍

    2. Thank you again for this reminder. With my daughters help I have set up a temporary method of finding archives. We are going to be working on a new design and layout that fits all that is used on blog here. There is a blog post pinned to top of the blog to show how to find archives.

  3. Dear Mr Pat Fitzgerald,

    Thank you for introducing yourself here. I have been visiting your blog since early June this year, when I read your poem for the first time. It is entitled “Momentum”.

    All in all, I am impressed and like your rhyming poetry, in which you have excelled. Since I have been composing mainly rhyming poems, often with end rhymes, internal rhymes, alliterations, assonances, consonances, sibilances as well as rhythmic devices, syllabic schemes, musical patterns, and other subtle or overt features, I naturally notice and gravitate to such features. Hence, I have many good reasons to like your poems.

    I hope that you will also enjoy my poems, musical compositions, essays, graphics and animations.

    May you find the rest of 2022 very much to your liking and highly conducive to your writing, reading, thinking, photographing and blogging whatever topics that accommodate your intellectual and creative endeavours!

    In anticipation of more excellent poems from you….

    Yours sincerely,
