ABSTRACT
IT'S an extraordinary thing to watch your child grow and become luminous with gifts that you know are in only the slightest degree to do with yourself. I have been having such an experience of late with my daughter, Róisín, who is blossoming into the finest writer our family has known. During the week, she was one of 30 young writers published in the Irish Times' Fighting Words supplement. Co-founded by Roddy Doyle and Seán Love (formerly head of Amnesty Ireland), Fighting Words is a remarkable success story of nurturing young writing talent. On Thursday, we went to the organisation's HQ on Russell Street, near Croke Park, to witness President Higgins launch a commemorative stamp.
