No doubt helped by the towns huge range of inspirational locations including the Swiss Cottage, Cahir Castle and the woodlands fairy trail and walks.
Many young writers entered who will no doubt go on to do great things in the future. The Tidy Towns group would like to thank Melissa for taking the time out to work with them on this initiative and giving her time to reading and selecting winners.

There was a huge entry which was beyond their expectations and it took a little longer to go through all the entries. It was a first venture for the group to try and encourage story writing and they would hope to build , learn and develop it in the years ahead.

Melissa learned her trade in Cahir where she was born and reared and has become a world acclaimed author. She has written many award winning books of which some have made it to the screen and more on the way.
We are very proud to call her our own and thank her once again.
Melissa will take time out to present the winners with their prizes this Sunday 1st May at 12 at the Fish in the car park.
