Two weeks ago, we invited readers to share their fictional or real Gathering postcards with us, inviting friends, relatives and compatriots to return to the auld sod in 2013.

Heartfelt, satirical and genuine offerings were all welcome, and extra points were given for humour.

The €200 prize goes to Ronan Niland for this entry. Congratulations, Ronan, and thanks to all who entered.

It’s your money we want, we were ruined with greed 
Then you can go away, we have what we need.
