Saint Brigid's Day 2023

1st February 2023

Our school community came together at break time for some cross making in school today - all years took part in what was a demonstration of skills which we have learned from generations before us. Everyone showed each other a thing or two when it came to the making of the crosses!

In days gone by Brigid's Cross were used to protect a house and drive evil, fire, and hunger away. It can also represent peace and goodwill, and it was even placed in cowsheds to safeguard animals and help cows to produce more milk.

Well done to all of our Pupils and Staff who took on the task of creating these wonderful symbols and also to Mr O'Gormlaithe who brought in the rushes all the way from Tyrone!
