‘Tell Us A Story’ Competition Winners Announced
The story writing competition winners were announced last week and Judge and Author Melissa Hill said “the standard of storytelling is alive and well in Cahir- no doubt helped by the towns’ huge range of inspirational locations including the Swiss Cottage, Cahir Castle and the woodlands fairy trail and walks. Some young writers who will no doubt go on to do great things in the future”.
The Cahir Tidy Towns group would like to thank Melissa for taking the time out to work with us on this initiative and giving her time to reading and selecting winners.
There was a huge entry which was beyond our expectations and it took a little longer to go through. It was a first venture for us to try and encourage story writing and we would hope to build, learn and develop it in the years ahead.
Melissa learned her trade in Cahir where she was born and reared and has become a world acclaimed author having written many award winning books some of which have made it to the screen and more on the way. We are very proud to call her our own and thank her once again.
Melissa kindly took some time out to present the winners with their prizes last Sunday at the Salmon Sculpture in the car park. Special thanks to all those who entered and please do keep writing stories and maybe in the years ahead you too can join Melissa on the red carpets.
Prize winners on this occasion it was said had written with lots of heart and imagination and they were ‘The Magic Within’ by Rachel Breheny, ‘Rocknesse’ by Katie Peters,’ Vicky the Fox’ by John Power and ‘Dilly Dee and little Fee’ by Brid Fahey Bates. Well done to all!
