Give the gift of poetry with the wonderful Event Poems
By ilovelimerick correspondent Frances Watkins
Sean can craft a poem for any occasion.
Event Poems is a wonderful business set up by Limerick man Sean O’ Doherty where he writes personalised and meaningful poems for his clients for all occasions.
Sean writes his poems to be used for all different types of occasions or even just because including weddings, graduations, funerals, birthdays.
Personalised poems are a wonderful gift to give and receive and one that will last in the memory of those in attendance long after the event is over and done with!
Sean decided to set up Event Poems due to his love of poetry, “I have always been writing poems for my friends for various occasions, especially weddings and birthdays and I have been doing that for years. It’s something that you can keep forever and frame, it’s a keepsake of a certain event in your life. I also write radio plays, speeches, and the odd song or two. Rhyming and humour come naturally to me and I really enjoy seeing people’s reactions which, so far, have been very complimentary. My poems are individually crafted – not formulaic – they achieve what no other gift can – something to remember – something to cherish.”
Each poem is unique with Sean highlighting the various aspects that are important to you and that you wish to be included for a truly personal touch.
Usually, a poem of 4 to 6 verses (4 lines in each) is sufficient, but not always. An eight-verse poem can be written at no extra cost. Thereafter, there is a charge per verse of €10. For framing purposes please bear in mind that the standard A4 page holds 8 verses.
There are a variety of poem packages available from Event Poems, the mini poem is €40 and consists of 4-8 lines, a standard poem is €100 and consists of 8 verses with 4 lines per verse and you will also be supplied with an MP3 recording of the poem. Finally, the complete package is priced at €140 and contains an 8 verse poem with 4 lines per verse, an MP3 recording and a printed scroll with the poem on will be mailed to you also.
Event Poems also provides a speech writing service whereby Sean will craft a speech for you to use at events if you are not too confident in your own writing, again personalised for your own particular needs and wants.
Seans tells me, “If you feel that a little overwhelmed because you have to make an important speech then you’ve come to the right place. The essence of a great speech is to keep it concise, interesting, amusing and rewarding. Be it a best man’s speech, or a political or business speech I can craft it for you to include the most prevalent points in an interesting and amusing way should that be desired. Writing is my passion and I am honoured to share that someone.”

AN ODE TO JACK (AT 80)
Who do we know that’s handsome and charming
Yet, on raising his eyebrows can look quite alarming
Who alone can the World’s problems unravel
While he drives his Jag and scoffs at free-travel ?
Crowd reply: “JACK” !
Who tonight, at ninety two
Pretends that he’s eighty to me and you
Who feigns that he’s sick – and then starts to grouse
So Lisa can come running – and clean up his house ?
I can see him now – he’s rubbing his belly
With thoughts of Formula One on his brand new telly
He’s going to get healthy and turn Vegetarian
So tell me, – who’s our favourite octogenarian ?
Yet who do we love and wish only well
Who’s our pal that we think is swell
Who is the auld fellow that we love the most
And to whom shall we raise our glasses for a special birthday toast?
