Dún a Rí Short Story Competition
Dún a Rí Short Story Competition
This competition is a search for a short story inspired by the magic of Dún a Rí Forest Park, Kingscourt, Co. Cavan. It aims to create a lasting legacy for the Forest which also acknowledges the existence of the unique sculptural works that have been commissioned for the Forest. This short story could be viewed as a modern day legend that informs popular vocabulary associated with the Forest and contemporary Irish identity. T  The winning story will be published in e-book format and a prize of €500 will be awarded to that writer.
