News Reading Rooms and the decade of the centenaries Our Rath Mor 50+ group and St John's Primary School got together for an inter-generational Reading Rooms session in celebration of the decade of the centenaries, 1913 - 1923. One hundred years ago To mark world events from 1917-1918, Reading Rooms hosted a special event. Our participation in the decade of the centenaries is supported by Derry City and Strabane District Council. The combined group read together The Christmas Truce by Carol Ann Duffy, and The Spirit of the Saints by the poet, Rumi. Two powerful poems that also coincided with World Poetry Day.
