A few weeks ago I entered a writing competition for the Liberties Festival in Dublin. We were asked to write 50 to 300 words on ‘the theme ‘Liberties’ – either the concept of liberties or The Liberties area of Dublin, Ireland’.
I decided that was well within my writing range so I gave it a go. I didn’t win but then this happened,
‘We were bowled over by the entries and decided the only decent thing to do would be to let the world read some of the best pieces we received. And so our collection “Liberties: Flash Fiction from Ireland” was born’.
The Liberties is one of the oldest areas of Dublin situated in the heart of the city. Many years ago I did my community nursing there for a few weeks. The many wonderful characters I met during that time, the stories I was witness to and the humour and spirit of those living there have left a lasting impression on me. The stories within this ebook give a wonderful flavour of the Liberties.
