BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
You can write stories from the past or in the present. They can be about the wildlife that lives or once lived in or around a waterbody, maybe stories about fishing, hunting or just watching nature. Stories of traditions or practices that once took place or maybe still do. Your story can involve folklore, local traditions, humourous tales or yarns associated with a waterbody. What makes this waterbody special?
The Waterside Writing Competition is partnered with the Heritage Council and the Heritage Officer Programme, Waterways Ireland and Inland Fisheries Ireland to look for stories about people’s favourite waterbody or interesting stories from someone you know.
Here’s an opportunity for all the family to get involved. So, why not get that story written down and enter this competition? You don’t have to be an expert writer to enter, just tell us your story or a story told to you by someone else.
Anyone can enter. You can enter more than one story. The closing date for entries is 31st May 2020.
