Readings At The Bookshop

On Friday 9th December the children from sixth class, Louisburgh National School met Ellen Ryan, award winning author of “Girls Who Slay Monsters”.

Following an introduction to Irish Goddesses, Ellen entertained everybody with the story of “ClIdna, Chief Wave of Ireland”.

This was followed by a fun quiz where the children were encouraged to discover “Which Goddess are you?” Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we rounded off the day with a donation of “Girls Who Slay Monsters” to the school library and a free raffle for a signed copy of the book for one lucky student.
