Belvedere students inspired
Students from Transition Year in Belvedere College, with the backing of tutor Nóirín McManus, have compiled a collection of the favourite inspirational writings of 60 different people – some well-known and some not. These include Bertie Ahern, Keith Duffy, Sister Stan, Ollie Campbell, Maxi, Fergus Finlay and Rosaleen Linehan, to name but a few. Any profits which may arise from the sales of Inspiration will go to the Belvedere Youth Club and Yo Bang Primary School in China, where Transition Year students (from Belvedere and its sister school Wah Yan in Hong Kong) go to teach English every year. Inspiration will be launched by artist Stephen Lawlor, whose etching Ecce Homo II appears on the front cover. It will be for sale through the college (e-mail [email protected]) for €10.
