Fantastic day today in Dublin for Offaly Dyslexia group thanks to The Journal and Irish rail for the train tickets. What a lovely way to finish off our term. Great experience going around the 1916 experience in Collins barracks and then a lovely walk through the peoples gardens and climbing the wellington monument ie those of us who dared. Our thanks also to the three tour guys in Collins Barracks who put up with the enormous number of questions from the kids.

We are looking for women walking in the women’s mini marathon to walk on behalf of Offaly Dyslexia group. We will put on a bus for anyone walking on our behalf. For sponsorship forms call 086 2309009. For booking bus contact Bernice O Brien
