Her work is getting great reviews so it's no surprise that a Killarney author wants to share her secrets to success.

This weekend she'll be doing just that - by inspiring little ones to take up their pens and use their imaginations.

Following on from her appearance at the International Literary festival Dublin, local author Olivia Hope will be delivering a Writing for Children masterclass at Writers Week Listowel this weekend.

Since the release of her picture book, 'Be Wild, Little One', illustrated by Daniel Egnéus and published by Bloomsbury, Olivia has had her book described as ‘luminously beautiful’ in The Guardian newspaper and ‘Poetic and inspiring ... A delightfully captivating book that will be a welcome treat for readers to enjoy time and time again’ in the Irish Examiner.

Tomorrow 9Saturday) she'll be in Eason Listowel at 3pm for the official launch of 'Be Wild, Little One', where the current director of Saint John's Arts Centre, Listowel, Máire Logue, will formally launch the Killarney woman’s book in the county’s literary capital.

"And don't worry if you can't make to Listowel this weekend, there are signed copies available in Eason, Killarney," Olivia said.

"Should you wish to have a personal dedication then be sure to let the staff know and they can arrange."

Killarney cyclist Sam Bolger (18) has been selected as one of four riders for the Belgian Project – one of the most prestigious stepping stones for Irish riders with ambitions to turn professional.

Northern Ireland-based Belgian Danny Blondell is the man behind the project.

For the last 15 years Blondell selects between four and six Irish riders and sends them to Belgium where they stay with local families and contest pro and semi-pro races.

As a race commentator Blondell is well placed to decide who is deserving of inclusion in the project.

Over the first six months of the year he makes decisions while attending early season races.

Those lucky enough to get selected go to live and race in Belgium for the second six months of the year.

Bolger, from Lewis Road, was selected after winning the junior race in the Cycling Ireland National Road Series in Mayo in March and the Orwell Stage Race in County Wicklow in June.

“He is delighted, it is a very big deal,” his father Paul told the Killarney Advertiser.

“He has had a very good year and the wins in Mayo and Wicklow secured the Belgium Project.”

Bolger will head to Belgium in late July and after to the Junior Tour of Ireland which takes place in County Clare between July 12 and 17.
