Where does Polly go on Holiday?

Where does Polly go on Holiday? little libraries Lough Neagh

Well, earlier this year Polly took a break and visited foreign lands. So where did she go? She left South Africa and headed for her first stop – Ireland. Here she stayed with Jann’s family in Northern Ireland.

Look what Polly found on the banks of Lough Neagh. A Little Library – where you can borrow and return books or swap for one of your own. There is a lovely Irish folk tale of the forming of Lough Neagh.

‘The famous warrior Finn MacCool (Fionn Mac Cumhaill) caused the creation of Lough Neagh. Legend has it that Finn was chasing a Scottish giant across Ulster when he picked up a large piece of ground and hurled it at the giant. It overshot and fell into the Irish Sea forming the Isle of Man while the massive crater left behind became infilled with water and formed Lough Neagh.’   http://www.discoverloughneagh.com/folklore-legend
