Allen Lee Ireland (born October 10, 1969) is an American poet.
Ireland was born in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, and grew up in Bryson City, North Carolina. He graduated with a B.A. in English and an M.Ed. from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He is of English, Irish, and German descent.
Ireland has written two books of poems, Loners and Mothers and Dark and Light Verse, both published by WordTech Communications. The first collection was blurbed by Bollingen Prize-winning poet Fred Chappell, who wrote: "In Loners and Mothers the lines are profoundly, almost harshly, felt and durably made." The book was reviewed favorably by IndieReader and Kirkus Reviews. Bestselling poet Tyler Knott Gregson said of Ireland's second collection, "This book is a wonderful addition to the world of poetry."
Ireland has lived in Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, South Dakota, and Alaska, and currently resides in Helena, Montana. He has said in interviews that he only decided to become an author at the late age of 46, and that Charlotte Bronte is the author he most admires.
Ireland is the son of Wilmot Robertson, author of The Dispossessed Majority.
