Childrens’ Land League

Ss. Peter and Paul N.S. have joined with the Michael Davitt Museum to create a really special development in the community. The first ever Childrens’ Land League has been founded in Straide. The focal point of the project is the awareness of social justice, a theme that inspired Michael Davitt to become one of Ireland’s most historical figures through his unwavering endevours of social and political justice. Funding has been awarded to Ss. Peter and Paul N.S. by the Arts Council. A writer will work with Ss. Peter & Paul N.S. to develop creative writing skills on the theme of social justice along with the development of process artwork. It is envisaged that work will be published in book format and launched in the Michael Davitt Museum. This community project is very close to our hearts and we look forward to launching it in 2020.
