Poetry Day Ireland with Virginia Library

#PoetryDayIRL is a special day celebrating poetry for everyone. To mark the occasion Virginia Library asked local primary school children to write us a poem on the theme 'Good Sports' and they certainly came up trumps! Six poems really stood out though by pupils form Crossreagh N.S. and Knocktemple N.S. Check out their wonderful words and see all the poetry on display in Virginia Library! Happy Poetry Day Ireland and thank you to all the children and teachers who took part!
