To celebrate International Literacy Day on Thursday 8 September the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) is hosting a special event that will feature learner stories, special guests and a presentation ceremony of QQI certificates to learners. We will also launch our new book and workbook called ‘LEGENDS’ and ‘Legends Matter’.

‘LEGENDS’ features short stories from the lives of 15 of Ireland’s greatest sports stars and is written in plain English, especially for adult learners. The book will be given to learners in Education and Training Boards (ETBs) and available in libraries nationwide. It was jointly funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development, and the Department for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science.
