I'm at the Library in Birr, Co. Offaly with my daughter Neve as she colours pictures and explores books. I must say that this place is the most amazing library I've ever seen. It's exterior is ash grey and very clean. The inside is awash in light and colour and filled with a plethora of books. The light streaming in through the windows creates a technicolour display that instills wonder. I'm in awe and I'm grateful for the generous gift of this Catholic order that gave this beautiful building for use as a place of learning.
