Jonathan Swift Awards

Jonathan Swift Creative Writing Awards, 2012

Susan Condon, Michael Whelan
and Doreen Duffy

What a wonderful night, at the Saggart Arts Centre, for the Jonathan Swift Creative Writing Awards Ceremony.

Jam-packed with so many fellow writers the night got off to a lively start with music from Tony Bardon.

Maria Wallace, Hennessy Award winning poet, was the judge who offered her congratulations to all of the entrants who had their poems and prose short listed.

It was an especially enjoyable night for me when two great writer friends were awarded, in the Poetry category:

Third place: Michael J Whelan
First place: Doreen Duffy

To be awarded First place in the Prose category made the night even more memorable.

The evening finished with a customary Irish cuppa, courtesy of Mervyn Ennis and his lovely wife, giving everyone a chance to have a chat.
