Huge congratulations to our girls school team who defeated Moate in the Division 2 semi final this afternoon on a scoreline of 4:08 to 2:07.


It was a fantastic game of football enjoyed immensely by the large number of home support present.


Bring on the final! 💪🌟🙌


*versus Tang with the date TBC*

5th class were treated to an art demonstration by the renowned artist Padraig McCaul this afternoon as he painted a unique and beautiful painting of our local church (the finished article will be shared at a later date!).

Padraig's son Tom is currently in 5th Class. He and his family moved here from Achill Island at the start of the school year and we are so lucky to have the McCauls in our school community.

The children asked Padraig lots of interesting questions and they were undoubtedly inspired by Padraig’s stories and skills as a “real life artist” ! 🎨 👨🏼‍🎨🖼

Thank you Padraig 🌟
