Skerries CC marks World Book Day
Two authors visited Skerries Community College last week as part of its World Book Day celebrations.
Best-selling local author Shane Hegarty, the creator of the popular Darkmouth series, made his annual visit to the school. Shane was born and raised in Skerries, where he now lives with his own family.
And poet Tony Curtis also dropped by during the course of the week where he sang some of his poems to the students.
World Book Day has become firmly established as Ireland's biggest annual event promoting the enjoyment of books and reading. The main aim is to encourage children to explore the pleasure of books and reading by providing them with an opportunity to have a book of their own.
