A new all-Ireland competition has been launched to give aspiring songwriters and musicians a chance to win €3,000 of music gear, a recording session in one of Ireland’s most famous studios and a chance to play a showcase gig at a top Irish venue. ‘Star Nation’ is the brainchild of Irish-owned pizza chain Four Star Pizza, which is calling on musicians across the four provinces to submit one original song for a unique opportunity to grab themselves a slice of success, increase their profile, and win some very tasty prizes. Full details on how to enter along with terms and conditions for entry, which must be read and agreed, can be found at www.fourstarpizza.ie/star-nation.
