November 23, 2015

friend or fowAs part of a collaborative project with Draíocht Arts Centre in Blanchardstown, Brian Gallagher, a local historical fiction writer visited our first year students today. He spoke to our students about what it`s like to be a writer, how to research a story and the process involved in getting a book published.

Brian also read some extracts from his book which concerns the period of history around 1916. This was followed by a short question and answer session. The talk was very informative and enjoyed by all!

The visit to Coolmine of Brian Gallagher supports our literacy initiative and our English and History curriculum.
