Young StoryKeeper!


1,256 Super Submissions!

Fighting Words and Great Lighthouses of Ireland have devoured every single one of the 1,256 stories, poems, illustrations, song lyrics and even stop-motion animations submitted for our Young Storykeepers initiative. They are simply fantastic!

Sent to us from every corner of the island of Ireland and beyond, the creativity has shone through and every Young Storykeeper should all be very proud!

Young Storykeepers: Volume One is here!

These wonderful works will be showcased in a multi-volume Young Storykeepers digital magazine across the summer.

To celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg, an online day of free creativity for young people taking place tomorrow, Young Storykeepers: Volume One is now live! 

Below are just some of the stellar submissions included in Young Storykeepers: Volume One.
