The pupils of second class assembled in their local church to receive their First Holy Communion from Fr. O’Bric on Saturday, May 12. Music and singing were expertly provided by Ms.Howley and her lovely choir. Unfortunately, class teacher, Mrs. Fleming could not attend due to the death of her father on Thursday. However, we were grateful to call on the experience and expertise of Mrs. Condon, Deputy Principal, to lead the Communion children on this very special day. Many thanks to Fr. O ‘Bric for a lovely ceremony. Buíochas ó chroí to all who contributed to a memorable event in the school year. Sincere sympathy is extended to Mrs. Fleming and all her family on the death of her father, Denis.
