Education Minister Mary Hanafin has called on teachers and parents to promote a culture of reading among children in an effort to improve Irish literacy standards.

Ms Hanafin made the call while visiting one of the first schools to receive free books under a recently launched €500,000 literacy initiative.

She said more than 86,000 primary school pupils in 600 schools would benefit from the scheme.
