Garret Pearse, along with a couple of friends, has recently started a fundraising project for Concern's Earthquake relief in Haiti called True Irish Stories for Haiti.The idea is to get as many people as possible, from all walks of life, to submit their true Irish stories.
The stories should be short, true and should relate to Ireland or someone Irish or something Irish in however tenuous a fashion. They will then publish a book with these stories to raise money for Haiti.
Initial deadline for submissions: March 7th.
Stories should be in the 600 word range.
