Congratulations to the winners, and we look forward to seeing you all at the awards ceremony next Saturday as part of the Literary Lunch (Nirvana Restaurant, The Mall, Ballyshannon, 12pm - open to the general public). Well done to everyone who took part. We had a record number of entries in both categories this year, and all of our judges were suitably impressed by the quality of the work. Thanks also to our judges Jessica Traynor, Paul Mc Veigh, Una Mannion and Theo Dorgan for all their hard work in selecting the winners.
