Oh my God, the frilly carrots in that curry picture! Urgh.
Nice to see a 1500 word limit in the story comp. I love those short shorts. 10 euro is quite steep, though, isn't it?
And I always think lit comps should be called after the local famous writer, to give them extra caché, non?

I don't think there is a famous writer from Tobercurry. Maybe a famous farmer, or policeman, or publican.... I agree that its expensive. Is there a programme anywhere for the festival itself?

thanks for dropping by. Not a lot of information available on the local website www.tubbercurry.ie, just the local writers group.
