Paul McLoughlin, 1947-2021

The Press greatly regrets to announce the death of the excellent and much-loved poet, Paul McLoughlin.

Paul published several collections with Shoestring, including The Road to Murreigh (2010) enriched by several of his own line drawings, and The Hungarian Who Beat Brazil (2017), which, in characteristically wry, droll manner, draws among much else on his love of football. He also edited for Shoestring Press a major New & Selected Poems by Brian Jones (2013), on whom he had researched and written an outstanding PhD thesis. He will be hugely missed.
