Short Story Competition Awards Special


Join Arena host Seán Rocks and RTÉ Short Story Competition judges Claire Kilroy, Neil Hegarty and Kathleen MacMahon for insights into the art of the short story, live music and performances from this year’s shortlist, and the announcement of the top prizes.

This long-running competition honouring Francis MacManus attracts thousands of entries every year and has launched many authors’ careers. For anyone interested in new Irish writing, this celebration of emerging Irish literary talent is not to be missed.
