Dr Gerry Smyth from LJMU’s English Department has won a UK and Ireland essay competition.

The essay entitled ‘Place-naming and Space-knowing: An Analysis of Two Irish Poems’ has won the Society for Name Studies in Britain and Ireland Essay Competition for 2012.

The judges commented:

“This is an intelligently written and thoughtful essay, which offers a sustained analysis of the use of the term tuaim in ‘Suibne the Lunatic’ and Seamus Heaney’s ‘Toome’.”
