Human Book Project

17th October 2018

Today, Transition Year students from Castlepollard Community College were given an insight into the wealth of knowledge, talent and artistic endeavor in the local community. The Human Book project is one which is popular across the world as experts, artists, writers and simply people with a story to tell, get an opportunity to share their ideas in an oral format. In Castlepollard, the students are surrounded by a wealth of talented people who shared their ideas, talents and stories with the pupils.

Students were invited to listen to each "Human Book" and were then encouraged to discuss and share ideas with the author. The local people involved in the project included:

  • Award-winning Poet, Peter Lyons
  • Award-winning Musician, Doreen Farrelly
  • Historian and former Branch Librarian, Roisin Moran 
  • Former Teacher and Local Historian, Nancy Higgins 
  • Artist and Poet, Brigid Walsh
