“The sense of community spirit, of will and determination on display in this area is inspiring and looking around at the new library today I can confirm that all their hard work has definitely paid off,” she said. “The Parent Teacher Association deserve a huge amount of praise for their efforts here and they could hardly have made a more sound investment. “Reading is a key way in which children begin to form ideas and really discover who they are. Getting a child interested in books at a young age is a gift that they will have with them for the rest of their lives. “What we have here is a community not just investing in a building but investing in the future of its young people and it is utterly inspiring.” Local Councillor Barra Ó Muiri said such initiatives were typical of the creativity and community spirit of the people of the area. “Reading is a richly rewarding activity which cannot be matched by television, computer games or mobile phones,” he said.
