County Museum

1st and 2nd class enjoyed a trip to Clonmel today as the Tipperary county museum in connection with the Clonmel Show showcased farming life and crafts.

They saw sheep being sheared, new calves, ponies, a blacksmith making horseshoes, a bee hive and alpacas.  They also saw a demonstration of weaving straw and rushes into St. Bridget’s crosses and the spinning of wool.

They had a great day.

Well done

A big well done to Sarah Bartley in first class who swam in the All Ireland’s Under 8 Freestyle swimming competition in May.  Sarah also won the counties Under 8 Sprint in Athletics and will now be representing Tipperary in the All Ireland’s in August.  A great achievement for someone so young and in both sports to boot!


Swimming Champs

A hearty Congratulations and well done to the Bartley sisters Eilish and Sarah who competed and medalled at the community games in Thurles at the weekend. They both did very well, Sarah came first in under 8 front crawl which means that she will now compete in the All Irelands this summer.


We are very excited that Yoga is starting at the school on March 7th for four weeks for Junior Infants to Second Class.
