"This was my first time taking part in the Writers Week and I was bowled over by the support and encouragement from all at the Cork Arts Theatre. Getting my work staged was a dream come true and I'd like to thank everyone involved for all their hard work. Going on to win the new writing section of the one-act festival was the icing on the cake. Writers Week is a tremendously enjoyable and extremely important festival and I look forward to being a part of it again and for many years to come"
