May 22nd, marked the first day of our Spelling Bee Provincial Finals.  The competition took place in our Eason Store, O’Connell Street, Dublin.  Twelve fantastic spellers gathered in our children’s book department to spell it out against each other in what was to be a magnificent Provincial Final.  We were joined by Alison Curtis and the Today FM team – make sure to tune into Weekend Breakfast on Today FM this Saturday where Alison will report on her highlights from the Leinster Bee Final.
