“The Centre Cannot Hold” wins Joe O’Sullivan Writers’ Prize


On Sunday 3rd December I was honoured to receive the 2017 Joe O’Sullivan Writers’ Prize from the Australian Irish Heritage Association for my story ‘The Centre Cannot Hold’. The award was presented by Denis Bratton of the AIHA at the Irish Club in Subiaco in conjunction with the annual Brendan Awards. I was made to feel very welcome indeed and was treated to an afternoon of singing, laughing and of course a couple of pints of Guinness! ‘The Centre Cannot Hold’ appears in the AIHA’s quarterly publication, The Journal, as well as on their website.  Thanks very much to Denis and the rest of the Perth Irish community for making my day/month/year.
