First, one of Anthony Wilson’s Lifesaving Poems, from Catherine Smith: How It All Started.

This is the digital StoryMap of an Irish archaeological journey along the Carlow bypass, a brilliant resource for history teachers.

One of the greatest hurlers of all time Jimmy Doyle dies last week, Vincent Hogan wrote beautifully about him here.

Another great use of mappingand a great resource again: 1916 Rising Pension Claimants mapped onto the 1912 OSI map.

Laure-Anne Bosselaar’s poem “Rooms Remembered” is the best I’ve read on grief in a long time.

Barnardos has proposed we provide free primary education for all, why stop there?

And finally, Tom Bennett has a new job, but holds no illusions about how difficult but rewarding teaching can be.

Here are all my reads of the week.
