Only a Giant can Lift a Bull: Launch of NEW Book on Farm Safety

Only a Giant Can Lift a Bull,  a Health and Safety Authority (HSA) book on farm safety created by 86 children in partnership with Kids’ Own, will be launched on Thursday, 28 November in Croke Park, Dublin by Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney.

This unique book, which aims to raise awareness of child safety on farms, will be sent to primary schools nationwide. Only a Giant Can Lift a Bull started life as the ‘On the Farm’ farm safety competition organised by the HSA which resulted in 10,000 entries from primary school children across the country. Children were asked to create a piece of art or to write a story or poem about life on the farm with a safety theme. The winning students took part in a series of ‘On the Farm’ workshops hosted by artists and writers from Kids’ Own at education centres in Dublin West, Sligo, Tralee, Athlone, Navan and Kilkenny.

Check out the workshops from around the country to see how the book was made.

The ‘On the Farm’ project and resulting publication ‘Only a Giant Can Lift a Bull’ is funded by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA). The project is further supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.

Only a Giant Can Lift a Bull will be available to buy on the Kids’ Own website and on Amazon from 28 November.
