Cruinniu na nOg 2021

Shane Hegarty and Marita

It was great to be back in the Lexicon Library in Dun Laoghaire to take part in this year’s Cruinniu na nOg.

It was brilliant to get the chance to talk to one of my favourite writers Shane Hegarty all about books and writing and stories. For us to actually be together in person filming carefully in the studio in the Lexicon and not just on Zoom was great fun! 

Cruinniu na nOg is a national day of free creativity for young people in Ireland. We are the only country to hold such a day. There are all kinds of events being held all over Ireland on 12th June to celebrate Cruinniu na nOg from Leprechaun Hunts to  Nenagh Kid’s Film Festival, Drumming to Crafts, Dance and Knitting so get creative and check them out.

Thanks to the film crew and the wonderful Sarah Webb and Librarian Marian Keyes for setting it all up. 

Happy summer reading to everyone!
