On Monday, 28th of November 2016, Holmpatrick N.S were fortunate to have a visit from an Irish poet Tony Curtis. There was lots of singing and laughing from all the children as he sang songs and recited poems for and with them. Tony asked for volunteers from the audience to help him. All children joined in enthusiastically and really enjoyed the visit.



Tony is a great poet and has a terrific way with words. We all really enjoyed his visit and look forward to a return visit in the future.

A big thank you to Tony for giving us a great day, entertaining us with his poetry and a huge thank you to the Parents Association for organising Tony’s trip.

Below is Tony’s poem “By bus to Christmas”.
