First Confession will take place on Tuesday 3rd March at 1 p.m. in the church. If you are free – and it’s convenient – you are more than welcome to come along but If you are at work or if you can’t make it, please don’t worry. If you have a child in Junior/Senior Infants they will be minded in Ms. McCarthy’s class from 1.45 and you can collect them there when the ceremony is over.
Seachtain na Gaeilge
Seachtain na Gaeilge week will take place from Monday 9th to Friday 13th March and on Tuesday 10th March, Airnean, the traditional Irish group specifically founded to play and explain Irish music to primary schools will once again play during Seachtain na Gaeilge week. Fronted by ex staff member, John Deegan, (Deego to his legion of fans) the concert will take place between 9 a.m. & 12 p.m. in the school hall. We are asking children to bring €1 on the day to offset the cost of the concert.
