A perfect World Book Day!
I drove up to Galway on Wednesday and was very kindly put up by Sadie Cramer and Mark Hand and their four children in a beautiful spot called Luimneagh West, just twenty minutes out of Galway City on the shores of Lough Corrib. Very peaceful.
Then I went into Kilcoona National School with Sadie where I met the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Classes, along with various parents and teachers. It was a treat – World Book Day is a BIG day in Kilcoona NS, the children all kitted out in various outfits and the school kitted out as well!
Then I headed into Galway to Dubray Books where, courtesy of Mary Esther Judy, I met with two different groups and they were all an absolute pleasure to talk to. Lots of questions and opinions, just as it should be. A camera crew from TG4 came along as well which was initially a little alarming but I got used to it. Unfortunately I was unable to speak to them in Irish, one day perhaps…
