Clare County Library and Limerick and Clare Education & Training Board (LCETB) have announced an exciting intergenerational literacy project involving grandparents and their grandchildren.

Commencing in Corofin Public Library on 8 March next, the Scéal project will see children and grandparents sharing memories, stories, current and old photographs, poems and songs led by facilitator and storyteller Ruth Marshall.

The objectives and aspirations of the cross-generational learning experience are many including writing, storytelling, poetry recitation and music performances in a casual setting in a community space where older adults and children will come together to share insights into their lives. The programme will also focus on offering all participants an opportunity to develop new interests and increase awareness of the lives and experiences of one another.

The six-week project will run on Friday evenings from 4.00pm to 5.00pm culminating with a family celebratory event and exhibition at Clare Museum, Ennis.
