Living Literacy in St. Joseph's!


The English Department ended the school term before Easter with some wonderful news! Mr O’Driscoll’s 5th Year class had written letters to the acclaimed Irish poet, Brendan Kennelly as part of their Leaving Certificate Poetry course.

Yesterday Brendan Kennelly’s sister, Nany contacted us on behalf of her brother to relay how grateful he was that the girls had taken the time to write to him. He was particularly impressed by the fascinating viewpoints offered and the many different nationalities present in the group. As a thank you for the time and care taken Brendan Kennelly will be sending some signed copies of his poems to the school!

Well done girls!
