The Irish Times Published our Story

I was on a Zoom call with some of my friends from the Remember Us Club when Stephen told me that he had read my story in the Irish Times. At first I thought that he was just joking with me and I didn’t believe him at all. I had to see it to believe so I went online immediately on my phone and sure enough, I saw the article with my very own eyes. Gobsmacked was how I felt. I quickly rushed over to my mum to show it to her. She was shocked as well and thrilled with delight; “Oh my God! I can’t believe it, you’re famous now Rachel!” I told my older brother but he didn’t seem too bothered. Afterwards I rang my Dad up and he was so so happy to hear the breaking news. I wanted to tell everyone about this achievement so I decided to let other people know about it as well.

The next day when I went into college in a great mood. I showed the staff the Irish Times website on my phone. They were also delighted to learn about this.

Here is the link to the full story: Harry’s Story ( 

"Oh my God! I can't believe it, you're famous now Rachel!"

So we wrote this story a long time ago during one of the Erasmus+ activities. The project was about “The Affect of Covid-19 on People with Disabilities”. Colm and his friends from Fighting Words helped us write many different stories using characters that we had already created. We did these stories during separate Zoom Breakout Rooms. It was good fun and I was happy with the story that my group created.
