Dr Tony Holohan To Launch Book At Clare Primary School Today

The Chief Medical Officer is to launch a newly published book of poems by pupils at a South East Clare primary school today.

Dr Tony Holohan will attend Scoil na Maighdine Mhuire in Newmarket-on-Fergus this afternoon to officially unveil ‘Covid Voices: Third Class pupils reflect’.

The book is said to encompass a unique collection of children’s reflections, thoughts and art work about the pandemic, with proceeds going towards the Red Cross’ Ukraine Appeal.



Special education teacher at the school, Fidelma Healy Eames, says it was a difficult time for children of primary school age over the past number of years.
