On the 10th of October Roisín Meaney facilitated a writing workshop for Children’s Book Festival. The participants were first year boys from the CBS Thurles. It was a lively, interesting and very worthwhile event which she adapted to suit teenage needs. Having a class of boys at a workshop, was something Roisín had not experienced previously and she was thrilled with the interaction from the boys. The feedback from them and the teachers was very positive and all in all it was a brilliant event which undoubtedly proved to be very inspiring for all of the budding writers in the group. Roisín was extremely affable and put huge effort into providing a fantastic event for us here in Thurles for CBF. We would love to see her again in the future.
