Did you know that Vampires are Irish? Or that Dracula is actually from Dublin? Author and illustrator Alan Nolan told the children in the Senior Room all about icky Irish monsters, from bats to banshees and from pookas to pixies! Alan Nolan has written and illustrated many books and comics for children and grown-ups, including Fintan’s Fifteen, Conor’s Caveman and the Murder Can Be Fatal series. During his live online visit, as part of The Children’s Book Festival 2021 Alan showed the children how to draw some scary monsters and spooky creatures. The children really enjoyed this super fun Hallowe’en themed event. Learn all about The Children’s Book Festival 2021 here.
