Antrim, Daisy Magill, winner of the KPMG Reading Hero Award, Elaina Ryan, CEO of Children’s Books Ireland and Seamus Hand, Managing Partner of KPMG Ireland. Daisy was nominated by her teacher, Ashleigh Moran, for the countless hours she dedicates to becoming a better reader. “Daisy comes to the class teacher (myself) every morning for extra support to improve her literacy skills and can be seen reading all the time,” Ashleigh said. “Daisy is my reading hero because she puts so much effort, time, sweat and tears into becoming a better reader and never resents the stories on a page but cherishes them.” The KPMG Reading Hero Award is awarded annually to a young person in Ireland or Northern Ireland who deserves special recognition for their reading efforts.
