St. Patrick's Day was celebrated in style at the Secret Garden Bookshop with an event to introduce the book Shannon and the World's Tallest Leprechaun (written by Sean Callahan and illustrated by me). There was green punch, cookies and a four leaf clover hunt.
But best of all was the performance by Irish dancers from the Tara Academy, who danced many different reels and jigs in both soft and hard shoes. They were amazing! The dances were not only incredibly intricate and tricky to do but they had to navigate in between bookcases, mobiles overhead and very tiny children in the front row.
Lots of friends and family came, including POBL members Jo, Sarah, Michelle and Tara.
