Irish Television Crew Filming Children Making Movie Documentary!

We all want to be celebrities! So when my old friend Leo Enright, of radio and TV fame, offered to undertake a series of interviews for Irish television with local school children on their Fionn science projects, I jumped at the chance! Because the young 'uns and their personal entourages (teachers, parents, neighbours...) would really enjoy their 'ten minutes of national fame' and be a great morale booster for little country schools.
The end result was that Leo visited two schools that featured on RTE news programmes a few weeks ago.
One school- Letterfrack in Connemara- gave viewers an overview of their marine projects.
The other television piece followed a group of pupils from Killeeneen National School as they travelled to Carnaun near Athenry to film and interview their counterparts on their Solar Energy project.
It made fascinating tv as we watched a children's movie documentary in the making!
Credit most go not just to Leo Enright for making this unique event happen but also to Bernard Kirk of the Galway Education Centre for his critical input
