Cake and Book Sale

On Friday the 27th of October we will be hosting our annual Cake and Book Sale.  It will be starting at 11am and will go on until 3pm.  All funds will be going towards Evan Hickey.  Evan is a young Clonmel man who tragically developed a cyst in his brain and urgently needs money for an operation in America to get his life back.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could bring in buns, cakes, healthy treats and second hand books to sell on the day.

We hope to see you there to support a great cause, from the Student Council of Ballyneale N.S. Jack Bourke, Jack Kinsella, Callum McFadden, Lenny Murray and Kate O’Hora.
