Thomond Community College

Thomond Community College Students are Authors! 

We are very proud of our first years who recently wrote their own book. 12 first years have written stories for a book called “Terrifying Tales” and it is illustrated by Limerick artist Hugh McMahon. The book came about as the result of a short story competition. The students wrote the stories with encouragement from their English teachers. The best stories were compiled by the school’s librarian Jane Bingham-Shee and illustrated by Hugh McMahon to create this book called “Terrifying Tales.”

The students were presented with copies of their own book at a book launch this morning. The students met the illustrator Hugh McMahon and were delighted to receive copies of their book to treasure. The event was attended by the students, their parents, teachers and our principal, Ms Norma O’Brien who warmly congratulated the students on becoming published authors. The book will soon be available as an e-book on the JCSP Digital library reserve for all post-primary students to read nationwide. Well done to all involved!
