The Millenium book,
A selection of poems, essays, anecdotes, pictures etc. by Irish school children in 5th Class in primary schools and in Transition Year in secondary schools, compiled to celebrate the Millenium. The Book was compiled by a sub-committee of the Millenium Committee. The sub-committee was chaired by Deirdre Purcell. The Book was prepared specially for the National Library of Ireland. The material from which the selection was made is held by the county and municipal libraries.
The papers comprise poems, essays and anecdotes representing the thoughts and aspirations of a large cross-section of children approaching the end of the millennium; most of the contributions are held in the county and municipal libraries but a selection taken at random has been included in the Millennium Book for permanent preservation in the National Library. The Millennium Book was organised by a sub-committee of the Millennium Committee chaired by Deirdre Purcell
