There was a marvellous response to the Limerick competition with 50 (yes 50) entries. The judging was done blind in that the judges, Jean Coran and Mary Williams did not know the authors of the limericks and chose strictly on merit; they had a hard job on their hands due to the quality and number of entries. After careful consideration the judges declared entry number 20 to be the winner, which was written by Rita Croft. The prize for the Hullavington 2007 Limerick Winner was a book token . Well done Rita; well done the organisers and all those who entered; and also, many thanks to the judges.
The organisers plan to display a selection, perhaps even all, of the entries in the village hall and on this website.
