"McAuliffe's got the gift. Mark the name. His sure hand is apparent in every line: syntax and pulse in the service of experience."
"Over the past decade John McAuliffe's steady contributions to poetry journals in Ireland, Britain and the United States have confirmed the promise of his 2000 'Poet of the Future' award from RTÉ."
