Last year’s prizes
After the fine actors took their bows, to rapturous applause for 1916: The Red-Letter Day, there were TWO colouring competitions from the book illustrations by the wonderful Kerry Hugill – one for children and one for adults; can’t say fairer than that.
The children’s one was Padraig Pearse rehearsing the Proclamation, and the one for adults was set in the GPO… we couldn’t possibly say who might be in that illustration!

The top prize in the Grand Book Draw for anyone who buys The Red-Letter Day book – at a special Easter Rising reduced price was a complimentary three-course dinner for two in The Croke Park hotel. The other goodies were Newbridge Silverware, Cross pens, Dove toiletries and La Roche-Posay.
Signed copies of The Red-Letter Day book by SP McArdle include two glossy bookmarks and a postcard (signed if you like, too)…

Well done to all the winners – fair play!
Congratulations to all the winners after the play on Easter Monday 2017. Retired teacher Hannah Bradley won the colouring competition for adults with her fine GPO illustration, and Darcy O’Shea won the Padraig Pearse version for younger folk. Hannah’s prize was a selfie stick, and Darcy took home a lovely toy box – well done to both of you.
Joe Brasier was delighted to receive top prize of a voucher for dinner in The Croke Park hotel scooped in the Grand Book Draw – Joe (left) is pictured below with Bank of Ireland Coolock manager Mark Murphy and author SP McArdle (Joe bought two copies of The Red-Letter Day during one of the author’s Bank of Ireland book signings – and struck it lucky in the Easter Monday draw as a result!).
