Short story competition hosted by Penguin Ireland and RTÉ Guide

Hat-tip to Louise Phillips for promoting this short story competition. The closing date is 5th of July.
The deadline is 6pm on a Friday in July so that you can finish writing the story, send it off, and then enjoy a long summer's evening in the company of your friends, sipping a well-earned cocktail.

Before you raise a glass to celebrate that you have entered the competition, you might bear in mind...
