Cavan Readers 'HALL OF FAME' for Ireland Reads!

Thank you too ALL our readers who supported Ireland Reads by pledging to #SqueezeInARead with Cavan Library Service. We received fantastic photos from readers across the county who illuminated our Cavan Readers Hall of Fame!

Congratulations to our daily winners and to the two overall winners who both have a lovely book hamper winging it's way to their doors!
