Roddy Doyle visit

He wouldn't have received a warmer welcome if he were wearing a red suit and a white beard. Writer Roddy Doyle arrived at Drogheda Library recently and was greeted by the sight of hundreds of children of all ages and from all schools, eagerly clutching copies of 'The Giggler treatment' or 'Rover Saves Christmas' amongst others, and clambering for floor space to hear the author read some of his own words. The event was one of a number the writer of such classics as The Committments and The Snapper had attended in drogheda that day as the culmination of 'Drogheda Reads Roddy Doyle' an initiative launched early last December.
Earlier in the day, he had delighted the pupils of St Oliver's and Ballymakenny presentation school by spending time reading their own compositions and looking at their artwork.
