Concern / Poetry Ireland Workshops
Workshops were held in Wicklow and Finglas, organised by Poetry Ireland and funded by ConcernWorldwide. Scoil na Coróine Mhuire, Ashford hosted the workshops in Wicklow and St. Malachy’s National School hosted in Finglas. Visiting schools in Wicklow were Holy Rosary National School, Wicklow Town, St. Joseph’s Girls’ National School, Rathnew and Newtownmountkennedy Primary School. Visiting schools to St. Malachy’s were St. Brigid’s National School and St. Fergal’s National School, Finglas.
Poetry Ireland’s team of writers Seamus Cashman, Jane Mitchell, Martina Murphy and Debbie Thomas worked with the children and explored global issues through poetry, drama and storytelling.
Moira Cardiff would like to thank the great welcome and support received from the host schools and to Marion Reardon, Schools Completion Wicklow and Imelda Burke, Home School Community Liaison co-ordinator, Finglas, for their help and enthusiasm. See photographs below and some comments by the children. These tell the story of a very enjoyable day for everyone.
