Poets and they know it!
Students from Rosses Community School have recorded a CD on the life and times of Ardara-born poet Don Byrne.
The students used their own purpose-built studio to undertake the project after hearing about the poet whose book ‘Soft Shoes and Sunshine’ touched a nerve with them.
Joe Rodgers, manager of the Store Studios, helped the students record the CD which will be released in the near future.
