Writing Competition Winners2021!
 
“A Good Dream but a Weird One Too’. Scéal beag deas atá lán de shamhlaíocht. Iarracht mhaith. Duais tuillte ag Emily O’ Sullivan an scríbhneoir óg 11 bliain d’aois. Maith thú!
 
 
‘Love, Loss and Lola’. Scéal greannmhar é seo. Tá sé suite i dtigh tábhairne Murphy’s Cé Bhréanainn. Scéal grá atá ann ina thiteann an fear áitiúil Mick i ngrá le Lola atá go hálainn ar fad. Ach cé hí Lola? Sin an cheist! Ag deireadh an scéil faighimid amach go díreach cé hí!! She is not who you think she is. A weird and side-splitting story this by Gearóid Fitzgerald. Maith thú! Duais tuillte.


So what are you waiting for, get writing and celebrate the beauty that is Cloghane Brandon!

Seo leat, má sea, bí ag scríobh
