Chance to win One City, One Book choice
Ahead of next month's Dublin: One City, One Book festival, RTE are giving people the chance to win a copy of this year's book, If Ever You Go: A Map of Dublin in Poetry and Song.
The annual, award-winning Dublin: One City, One Book initiative from Dublin City Council is led by Dublin City Public Libraries and encourages people to read a book connected with the capital during the month of April.
The organisers of the festival say that If Ever You Go "will take you on journeys from Howth to Dún Laoghaire and Grafton Street to Clondalkin and all points in between as seen through the eyes of poets and songwriters through the ages".
To be in with a chance of winning If Ever You Go, edited by Pat Boran and Gerard Smyth, just answer this question:
Name five places in Dublin ending in O?
Send your answer, name and address, marked One City, One Book Comp, to:firstname.lastname@example.org. Closing date: Friday March 28. One entry per person.
Dublin: One City, One Book begins on Tuesday April 1, with the full programme of events available at: www.dublinonecityonebook.ie.
