Scéal Trail: Mo Chuid Amhráin Ghaeilge Páirc Ráth Chairn

Is bealach spraíúil é an Scéal Trail chun taitneamh na léitheoireachta, grá don taobh amuigh agus roinnt gníomhaíochta fisiciúla a thabhairt le chéile. 
Tá an Scéal Trail mar chuid den tionscnamh An Ceart chun Léitheoireachta ag do Leabharlann agus táimid bródúil as an litearthacht a thabhairt isteach i gcroílár an phobail. Tá súil againn go mbeidh spraoi agaibh ag léamh an leabhair, ag éisteacht leis na hamhráin agus fiú ag canadh.
