The children in Granlahan N.S. visited Ballyhaunis recently to meet well known children’s author, Cora Harrison. Ms. Harrison is the author of the hugely Drumshee Timeline Series, as well as books for younger readers. After a most interesting and well received talk on her work as a novelist, Ms Harrison then engaged the children in a question and answer session about her novels and about creative writing in general. The children had a most enjoyable afternoon and are delighted to have met one of their favourite authors.
