Ruadan, Riona and the Luadog Chalice Launch

Student Authors from Scoil Chatriona Senior, Renmore
I always get so excited when I have the privilege of working with the local schools! Yesterday, at Dubray Books Galway Branch, it was our absolute pleasure to host a mini-launch of the wonderful book, Ruadan, Riona and the Luadog Chalice. The students from Scoil Chatriona Senior in Renmore descended on the shop at 10am to present the first launch of this book, which was written in a collaboration of students from twelve Galway schools with the assistance of the Galway City Partnership and the School Completion Programme. It is a wonderful adventure read that sees our heroes travel across the globe, visiting every port that the Volvo Ocean Race visits, beginning and ending in Galway. (And the book is available just in time for the Volvo Ocean Race Festival, which is taking place in Galway 30 June through 8 July!) A truly exciting adventure story, as was the writing of the book, according to our young authors!
Congratulations to you all!
Scoil Chatriona Senior students are responsible for the writing of chapter eight; Miami: The Maze.
