    Niamh Sharkey used to bring her kids to our toddler group in Skerries when I used to live there…she wasn’t quite so famous then. I remember on a mum’s night out after too much wine quizzing her drunkenly on how she got started on her career, never imagining, though often dreaming, that I might write a book of my own, and now I have just finished my 2nd! My oldest son is 12 and loves writing stories, I will point him in the direction of this comp, and thanks for bringing it to our attention!
