School visits

Poetry Ireland’s Writers in Schools Scheme offers school visits from writers & storytellers, (with support funding for schools). I have been a member of this great scheme for many years, having completed hundreds of one-off visits, as well as numerous multiple week residentials (including the Development Education through Literature Project – see Poetry Ireland website.)

Here’s a typical visit to a school in Headford, Galway. bookfair2012 – Scoil Mhuire na Dea Chomhairle
