AMANDA FERGUSON in west Belfast
Wednesday, December 9, 2020
Thank you to the team at the James Connolly Visitor Centre Áras Uí Chonghaile for asking me to be a guest on their podcast series GLÓR at Leabharlann Uí Chonghaile (buzzsprout.com)
The brief was: "Reflections from a range of authors, journalists, civic leaders, historians and generally interesting people exploring the importance of the written word, the value of a library and their own inspirations and motivations. Based in Áras Uí Chonghaile, the James Connolly Visitor Centre, Belfast."
You can listen to my 10 minute episode here: 6. Amanda Ferguson - GLÓR at Leabharlann Uí Chonghaile (buzzsprout.com)
And the other episodes in the series are all here: GLÓR at Leabharlann Uí Chonghaile (buzzsprout.com)
In the podcast I mentioned the lessons from covid, good communication, the importance of learning and libraries, my formative years in north Belfast, being a pupil at St Thérèse of Lisieux and attending Belfast Royal Academy, where my favourite teacher was Mr Dickson.
This is the story I mentioned about the anniversary of the school:
Randomly I had cause to be in Chichester Avenue today so I called by Chichester Library, where I would escape to as a child, and took a cheeky snap.
Enjoy the podcast, I enjoyed taking part.
