You are probably aware that Andy Kettle has sadly passed away. Requiem Mass will take place at 11am on Friday morning 19th of December in Rolestown church. It is likely that there will be a huge crowd present, with parking and traffic-related issues.
The Board of Management has decided that in the interest of the safety of our pupils and their parents, the school will remain closed to pupils on Friday.

Congratulations to our footballers who beat G.S. Boroimhe 3-15 to 1-13 in the Cumann na mBunscoil final in a highly entertaining match in Croke Park on Monday.

The second half proved to be much closer but we held on to an 8 point lead at the final whistle.
