Behind the Scenes: Family Sports Reporting Workshop with Ger Siggins

Sunday, 25 Oct
Free, booking required

“The best thing about writing about sport? Getting to work in something you love – not only do you get in free but sometimes people even pay you to do it!” Ger Siggins

Ever wanted to be a sports reporter? Find out how in this special Behind the Scenes workshop! Ger has been going to games since he was small enough for his dad to lift him over the turnstiles, and he’s been writing about sport since he was eight years old! Former sports editor with the Sunday Tribune, his 16 books include ten best-sellers in the Rugby Spirit and Sports Academy series. His latest book is Gaelic Spirit. 

A great workshop for everyone over the age of 9!
