“ The Celt, and his cromlechs, and his pillar-stones, these will not change much – indeed, it is doubtful if anybody at all changes at any time. In spite of hosts of deniers, and asserters, and wise-men, and professors, the majority still are adverse to sitting down to dine thirteen at a table, or being helped to salt, or walking under a ladder, of seeing a single magpie flirting his chequered tale. There are, of course, children of light who have set their faces against all this, although even a ...more ”

[close] Come read with us! In September 2020 we held an online public vote to choose the 4 books we would together explore between October 2020 and May 2021. The winning books were; They are: Climate Justice by Mary Robinson, Violent Borders by Reece Jones, On Fire: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal by Naomi Klein, Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit. Here's how it will work: 1. Read the book and / or associated read and watch lists (psst: you can receive a book of your choice from the 4 winning books for donating just €4 to us a month!) 2. Join the free public event where a contributor working on the issue covered in the book will join us to explore the issue and actions that can be taken to improve the situation. 3. Take part in a development education workshop to be part of a reflective, critical space for exploration of the issue, and to connect the dots between seemingly disparate issues of global justice in order to foster a sense of interconnectedness and understanding of root causes

[close] Long ago, there was a man named Collin O'Brian. He was a young man of the best blood in Ireland, so close to inheritance. But Collin had three elder brothers, and therefore would be given no inheritance of land from his very wealthy father. What he did get, though, was the best education that could be found. He treasured this, as he knew that besides a sum of money, it was all his father would give him. Collin paid close attention to his studies, and excelled to the top of his class. He knew that with the fortune he made as a professor, he would start his own school, his own legacy to be passed on. And so O'Brian Academy was born. The school has been the home away from home to wealthy and talented children (grades 9-12) since its opening, and attracts students from all around the world. The schooling this academy provides for its students is the best money can pay for. Over the years, the school has broadened its offered courses to those specifying to arts and academics alike. The programs in photography, art, music, even boxing and dance, as well as those of business, science, mathematics and literature are made for only the best and brightest minds the world holds (or the wealthiest). The Academy is still under control of the O'Brian family, the Headmaster and his family reside in a mansion-like home just moments away from the school.
