St. Patrick’s Day guided reading script
St. Patrick’s Day guided reading script was written for 6 speakers, representing the world of music, literature, politics, exploration and not forgetting St. Patrick himself, of course! As with all my group readers, this comes with a quiz at the end.

Interviewer: As every good Christian knows. And you, St. Patrick, certainly dedicated your life to the service of others!
St. Patrick: Well, I tried – but let’s not forget all those countless individuals that followed me. What amazing contributions they made, in their various fields.
Lewis: The world of literature has certainly seen amazing Irish talent – let’s see now: James Joyce, George Bernard Shaw, Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats ….
Geldof: And what about the world of music – the great U2
Kennedy: And Bono – another politically minded rock star, like you!
Geldof: Indeed! But let me continue – the great Van Morrison, Chris de Burgh, Enya, The Dubliners,
St. Patrick: Boyzone and Westlife – a little less ‘rough around the edges’ than some of these rock musicians!

St. Patrick: You’re right! How do they think of such names?!

Interviewer: What a great 007 he made!
Kennedy: And as for all those Presidents with Irish blood – at least 23 of them! Wow! We sure have a lot to thank Irish blood for! What a nation!
Interviewer: And to conclude – a quote from each of you kind gentlemen, if you would!
