Indeed it was a privilege to accompany 8 of our pupils to Poetry Ireland’s offices in Dublin. They, and pupils from one other school, were greeted by the former Irish-American ambassador Anne Anderson and had the opportunity to recite their poems at a wonderful event sponsored by Poetry Ireland.
To their delight, the pupils were presented with a bound copy of their very own published works by the former Ambassador, who had commissioned the work through the Oileán Programme. More about their poems, based on the theme of immigration and the diaspora will follow in a later post. For now, we are very proud of their achievements, thar a bheith bródúil ar fad!
