Launch of ‘Our Town’ by Ennistymon Vocational School at Ennistymon Library

The launch of ‘Our Town’ a book created and published by Second Year students from Ennistymon Vocational School took place in Ennistymon Public Library on the 13th of May 2014. Teachers and students from Ennistymon Vocational School were present along with members of the North Clare Historical Society. The book includes all the most prominent landmarks in the town including the Falls Hotel, Ennistymon Castle, the West Clare Railway and the renowned Ennistymon shopfronts.

The end product of the history project, co-ordinated by Halimah Heaslip, a teacher at Ennistymon Vocational School, and Oonagh Kelly, the second year JCSP co-ordinator, is a beautifully finished book presented in a purposely created display case which is reminiscent of the Book of Kells. Staff at Ennistymon Library are delighted to have “Our Town” on public display during the coming weeks and invite anyone with an interest in local history to come and see the book during regular library opening times.
