Benedict Hurley



  1. Where, do you hail from?
I’m from Cóbh in Ireland.
  1. What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?

Cóbh is full of history and beauty. It’s easy to find inspiration living in a place like this, I am so lucky to call it home. As a coastal town the area is full of colour and beauty, with the return of liners into the port, it has made the town more lively. It’s definitely a place worth visiting!

  1. What turns you on creatively?

Life. Also I find being surrounded by good people gets me in a creative mood. I write songs as well as poetry, when I am with good friends or family, the words flow easier. Memories are great also, laughter.

  1. What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?

Inspiration is my favourite word. I find inspiration in most things. Even when I write a sad poem or song, I find inspiration in my everyday.

Inspiration finds me and brings me joy, inspiration in my children’s smile, I find it in the sun and find it in the stars, inspiration fills my heart and soul.

  1. What is your pet peeve?

Lack of communication. Overuse of mobile phones. Even though I am writing this on a mobile phone, too many people are living their lives through a screen, rarely looking up to see the beautiful world around them.

  1. What defines Benedict Hurley?

I’m a searcher. I’m always looking for my next line or my next chord, I also love being able to help or co-operate with like minded people. My words are what really defines me, if you want to know me, then read what I have written.
