This competition is divided into 4 categories and they are as follows:
Stories of Days Gone By
This category covers history and heritage and might include a story of growing up in the village, a tale from your early schooldays, village traditions or events from days gone by or you could delve into the history of one of our many heritage sites.
This relates to ecology, nature and life on the river, so it could include your account of flora and fauna of the riverside nature trail, a narrative about wildlife on the river, or it could be a story about water activities like rowing, kayaking, swimming or fishing.
This might include an ancient myth that you’ve heard about, a family fable passed down through the generations, or a folktale or local legend told by a neighbour.
This category looks at everyday life in a small Irish village and asks what makes Castleconnell special to you. It could relate to activities in your local club, a particular event in the village, or a personal story about friendships and days out.
