“Nobody should be told they don’t need an education.”

“Nobody should be told they don’t need an education.”

These are words from Noel Phelan of Callan, who features in a new RTÉ documentary that pairs six Irish authors with six adults who have struggled with writing throughout their lives.

Titled A Story with Me in It, the documentary series starts tonight (Monday) at 7.30pm on RTÉ One with the 53-year-old Callan man. Each programme focuses on one person’s story and the challenges they face to write that story down.
