School playing pitch.
Great progress has been made during the summer, the field has been drained, topsoiled and seeded and is now a verdant green, despite its appearance it will not be commissioned until 2015. Footpaths have been extended to service the pitch also. Credit is due to many, to those who secured funding and to Frank Reynolds contractor who did the groundwork. The funding does not cover goalposts, fencing or dugouts and we would be grateful to anyone who could
help fund these facilities.
Bereavements.
We sympathise with student Tara Doherty on the death of her aunt Maura Doherty Fallon.
We extend sympathy to Ms Kellegher on the death of her mother in law Mrs Mae Kellegher, who is grandmother to Alice Egan and Nessa Kellegher  May they rest in peace.
