Education Minister John O'Dowd joins webcast to mark World Book Day

Education Minister John O'Dowd has celebrated World Book Day by taking part in a live discussion at the Ulster American Folk Park, which was broadcast over the internet to schools.

The minister was with international bestselling children's author Marita Conlon-McKenna, Ivan O'Brien of O'Brien Press, and author and illustrator Oisin McGan for the webcast.

He told the watching schoolchildren: "Reading is greatly rewarding and arguably cannot be matched by film or television."
