2020 Winners

Our Writing Competition

The poems and short stories are read, opinions mulled over and decisions reached. We were thrilled at the number of people who entered and at the depth and variety in subject matter. Each selection held our attention with either a line, phrase or sentiment that gave us pause, an invitation to return, to re-read. So, the decision on the recipients of the Banner Books gift vouchers was a difficult one. These are the winning entries, chosen by our sponsor and judge:

Short story: Catherine Murphy for ‘Freezer Space’

Poetry: Antoinette Lyons for ‘Returning Home’

Youth category: Alex Molloy for short story ‘The Burren Troll’
