Ms.Murphy and 6 of her pupils were invited to visit Bishopscourt Residential Home to help celebrate the Bealtaine Festival. The aim of the festival is to encourage creativity in older people. Our pupils and the residents were very busy researching the history of our parish. They were surfing the net as well as watching the parish DVD which was compiled by our own local historian John L. O' Sullivan. The children also compiled projects with the residents which are currently being displayed at the home.
