Senior pupils in Scoil Naomh Antaine (SV Anthony’s NS), Kingstown, Clifden, Co. Galway became co-authors in 2004 with the publication of “An Island Here, An Island There”.

Their small, rural two-teacher school is situated on the outskirts of Clifden, Connemara with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, numerous inlets and many offshore islands. Many of the pupils enrolled in the school have strong connections with Inis Turbot, their parents and grandparents having lived there prior to its evacuation in 1978.
