Visit of McCarthy Cup

On Friday September16th, there was great excitement in the school. Kilkenny Captain, Brian Hogan, accompanied by Richie Doyle, brought the Liam McCarthy to the Pres.  The hall was full of excited cheering fans, and black and amber was everywhere. Mrs Kelly welcomed the lads in her Kerry jersey! Mrs Moran was M.C., and she recounted the history of the Cup for everybody. We raised the roof with The Rose of Mooncoin. Brian gave our boys and girls some sporting advice and Richie declared Monday to be a homework free night! There are lots of pictures of the event to be seen.  Bhí maidin iontach againn.


Konor Halpin, from New Ross, is now giving guitar lessons after school, every Thursday. We will look forward to hearing our musicians performing for us in the future.
