A COROFIN schoolgirl could see her name featured in the top selling book lists in the future. Caoimhe May O’Rourke is launching her debut book this Friday and is already planning to put aside some of the profits to fund a future career in writing.
The busy 12-year-old took the time to rewrite and illustrate 'A Trip to Hospital’ which she first penned aged 9.
Half of the profits from sales of the book will go to Barrettstown, because they were “so good” to Caoimhe May’s cousin, Aoife, who has now fully recovered from cancer. The other half are to be put aside for Caoimhe May’s own college fund.
The book is published by Emu Ink and will be launched this Friday, July 10 at the Galway Education Centre at 6 pm.
