Great Lighthouses of Ireland and Fighting Words are inviting 7-12 year-olds to light up their imaginations and become Young Storykeepers!

For Cruinniú na nÓg 2020, 7-12 year-olds are invited to create an original story inspired by lighthouses. Your unique 500-word story can take any form; from short story to poem to play, or even a song, comic or illustration!

The story must involve a lighthouse, a buoy or even a helper vessel like the ILV Granuaile.

The lighthouse/buoy/vessel in your story can serve any purpose, it can be a real or fictitious setting or even a character in your tale!
