Dear Parents,

A special thank you to Marion Fenton, Maud Mainfray, Rita Taaffe, Caitriona McDonagh, Emma Dyball and Paula Durham for organising this event. Míle buíochas also to Mrs. Murphy for organising the gaeilge resources for the children and ‘díolachán’ participation by the 5th and 6th class students, to Starbucks for donating and serving the coffee and to all the parents who baked and volunteered on the day.

At present in Carysfort we are celebrating cultural heritage through the Arts.
