Kenmare woman’s story chosen for ‘Ireland’s Own’ anthology ‘18
A KENMARE woman’s short story has been selected from over 500 entries and is included in the ninth edition of Ireland’s Own ‘The 2018 Anthology of Winning Irish Short Stories’.
With 18 counties represented through almost 40 pieces, Faye Boland from Muxnaw, Kenmare, is flying the green and gold flag in the anthology with her story, A Dog’s Life.
The piece tells of a woman who was left to care for her four children and dog, Laddie, 13 years ago.
She is now reflecting on her life as her youngest child prepares for college.
Ms Boland had already built up considerable literary experience prior to this; the retired law lecturer has won several literary competitions in times passed.
The anthology, at €14.99, can be ordered online at www. irelandsown.ie and is widely available through bookshops nationwide.
