A huge thank you to all the participants that entered the Creative Writing Competition, the quality, range, generosity and humour contained within the work will remain with staff of the gallery.
The idea of a writing competition was proposed by Laura McKenna, who runs a creative writing course in the gallery.
The competition was run in conjunction with the launch of the gallery publication Three Centuries of Irish Art.
While run on a shoe-string budget, we were nearly overwhelmed by the number of submissions that we received!
