My Treasure – Mary Catherine McNeilly
‘A prize winning essay on my Summer holidays’
‘I recently found this old book tucked away in a cupboard. The book is covered in paper to protect it from damage. I won it in an Irish Weekly newspaper essay competition when I was about 15 years old. The essay I wrote was about my Summer holidays and I was delighted at the time to receive this book as a competition prize. The book is called ‘Three Daughters of the United Kingdom’ and is about a group of girls in a boarding school. I recently read the story again and still found it to be quite interesting’.
