Introducing “Rory’s Rainbow”: A Beautiful Children’s Picturebook by Fingal Resident Aoife Kirwan

Aoife Book

Rory’s Rainbow is a new children’s picture book, written and self-published by Garristown resident and local school teacher, Aoife Kirwan.

The book tells the story of Rory the robin who goes on a love hunt and seeks answers to lots of questions he has on his mind. He brings his dad along with him and, as their hunt progresses, Rory discovers that love can be found everywhere, every day.

Rory’s Rainbow is a beautiful book with a beautiful message. It is delicately illustrated with pretty watercolour pictures which were painted by artist, Ciara Flynn.

It has a special place in Aoife Kirwan’s heart because three years ago she gave birth to a baby boy named Rory. Sadly Rory died just seven weeks later having suffered from an illness.

During that difficult and heartbreaking period, Aoife and her husband found great comfort in the help and support they received from A Little Lifetime Foundation. This is why Aoife has decided that the proceeds from the sale of her book will go to the Foundation.
