Cliftonville football club helps Holy Cross boys' school promote reading

A north Belfast primary school has enlisted the help of a football club to encourage dads, uncles and granddads to read alongside young boys in their family.

Holy Cross boys' school designed the initiative because they believe most reading practice is led by women.

Cliftonville Football Club is helping by allowing leaflets to be handed out at a match at the Solitude ground.

BBC News NI Education Correspondent Maggie Taggart reports.
