Gareth O’Callaghan launches Short Story competition in Loughrea

The writer and broadcaster, Gareth O’Callaghan launched the Home-Start Short Story Competition in Loughrea Library on Tuesday 30th of October. The competition is open to all parents in County Galway. Entries may be written or oral and must begin with the line “I am a parent, I never thought that being a parent would feel so …..”

The prize for the best entry is a Family Holiday in France:country-region, Spain:country-region or Italy, country-region, sponsored by Kelair Campotel in Ballinasloe.

Home-Start is a voluntary organisation with a dedicated group of trained volunteers who visit parents at home, while the children are young and while their need for support is greatest. Each volunteer offers friendship, emotional support and practical help for as long as the parent chooses.
