Creating a buzz in Strokestown -Mid Summer Poetry Competition

To celebrate the creation of the Pollinator Flower Bed in Strokestown, we have launched a new poetry competition to tie in with Heritage week, the theme of which is ‘Sharing Stories’. The flower bed was the creation of four local groups: Strokestown Tidy Towns, STAAR Brothers of Charity, Men’s Shed and Town Team. So, write a poem and help us share the story of this creation.

To enter, please drop your poem into the Community Development Office 10 – 1.

There is a 1st Prize of 50.00, and the poem will be displayed in the Grotto for the duration of Heritage week.

no more than 30 lines, written in English.
