Honour Roll – 2010 Winning Writers

The following eight members of Ireland North East passed the 50,000 words in one month finish-line this year. While we’re proud of everyone who took part, it’s only fair to give this lot an extra cheer. Two were veterans of the region in 2009 and one was under 20.

Result of the All Ireland Word War this year, run by Farfalla (ML for NorthernIreland) – Leinster won! But special mention goes to Crowley from the Connaught team who wrote more than 27,000 words in the last two days. Amazing stuff.

Well done everyone!
