Ré returns for Seachtain na Gaeilge

Clare author, Ré Ó Laighléis made a most welcome return to Ennistymon and Miltown Malbay libraries to meet with classes from St. Joseph’s Secondary and Ennistymon Vocational Schools to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge. According to the staff of Ennistymon Library, Ré’s enthusiasm for the promotion of the Irish Language was infectious. During his lively presentations in both branches Ré held the attention of the audience entirely. He was both entertaining and openly engaging while giving students plenty of food for thought. He read extracts from some of his books stopping at crucial places in the stories to lure the reader in. The theme of his talks was "Taitneamh agus Dushlain" and according to staff in both branches neither was lacking. While Ré’s talks were scheduled for Secondary School students, many adult patrons in both libraries were also hooked by his performance.

Míle buíochas ó Leabharlann Chontae an Chláir do na múinteoirí, na daltaí agus go háirithe do Ré as ucht a bheith linn i rith na seachtainne.
