Untold Stories of COVID19 - Only the Young

12 Apr 2021

On 12th March 2020, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar – speaking from Washington, D.C. – announced the closure of all schools in Ireland in a bid to slow the spread of COVID-19. Throughout the months that followed, children and young people across the country were supported by parents and guardians in their home learning, while also drawing on a number of resources specifically introduced to help them. This is the untold story of how Children’s Books Ireland, RTÉ and The Glucksman were committed to continuing access to education, reading, art and culture throughout the pandemic.
