We’re thrilled to announce the lucky and hard-working recipients of both our Florence and Cill Rialaig Residencies.

Congratulations to Annette Skade who will spend one week in St Mark’s Church, Florence. During her stay Annette will have the opportunity to meet the local writing community and will take part in a public reading.

Congratulations also the following writers who will spend ten days in Cill Rialaig, County Kerry; Sue Leonard, Fiona O’Rourke, Breda Wall Ryan, Anna Heussaff, Moyra Donaldson, Aiden O’Reilly, Kelly Creighton.

The decision process wasn’t easy and we’re honoured to offer these talented writers the time and space to write in beautiful and inspiring surroundings.
