RTE Arena Flash Fiction Challenge - The Results
The overall winner was Kerrie O'Brien, the details are listed here
My piece 'You talkin' to me?' was listed in the 'Special Mentions'. It's a piece about a small time Dublin criminal who has a Robert de Niro fixation.
Congratulations to everyone on the lists!
Dave Lordan was the judge and read an extract from my piece on the show on RTE Radio 1 on the 24th April when the competition was still open. It can be heard here about 7 minutes in, starts with 'Matthew...'.
I may extend my story and work on it a bit and try and find a new home for it.
