ALL articles and Photos submitted should have the sender’s name, together with contact telephone no., email etc. in case of queries, before hitting return.
Articles should not be too long-winded and should contain plenty of local information such as “Mary Murphy, is the second eldest daughter of Martin and Ann Murphy, The Pines, Ballinasloe and was educated in Creagh NS before receiving her secondary education in Ard Scoil Mhuire, and later going to University in London etc.).”
Typical article large length of number of words should be 700 max.
Photos will only be published if they are of GOOD quality and contain ALL the names of the people in them.
As many of our readers left Ballinasloe several years ago, particularly overseas, they love to read about, or see photos of, people they knew or are related to. That is why it is so important to give the full Christian names and addresses in articles, photos etc. There is a huge demand for LIFE around the country and overseas.
All copy should be “read over” for spellings, punctuation and accuracy before being sent to printers.
No guarantees should be given that any articles or photos WILL be published. That is at the discretion of the Editor.
If your copy arrives prior to the official deadline as advised on the schedule; we will get the final text back to you for a review. If it arrives after, we won’t be able to facilitate with reviews.
As always, submissions are to be made to 'Ballinasloelife@hotmail.com'. We look forward to hearing from you!
