‘THE SPINNING HEART’ by DONAL RYAN

Complete Chapter Summaries of The Spinning Heart by the class

Our school was very lucky to host author Donal Ryan on Thursday to talk to some Fifth Years and Transition Year students. His book ‘The Spinning Heart’, which is on the Leaving Cert, centres around the character of Bobby Mahon and the wider community, as they struggle when the recession hits Ireland. Donal was very generous with his time – he read a passage from his book and answered lots of questions with honesty and wit.
