Virtual St Patricks Day 2021

This year’s St Patrick Day celebrations were a bit different than others but it was a day that we’ll certainly remember. 

Our school took part in the local virtual parade organised by the Clonakilty Mayoral Town Council. The theme for this year’s parade was “Heroes”. 

As part of our parade, all our classes danced to the song “Jerusalema”. The pupils had fantastic fun and made a huge effort with dressing up to mark the occasion, either in the emerald green of St Patricks Day attire or as they’re chosen “Hero”. It certainly was a colourful affair. 

The school was paid a visit by current Clonakilty Town Mayor Padraig O’Reilly on the day who video recorded our contribution to the virtual parade. Thank you Padraig for visiting our school and for your patience on the day. 

Well done to all pupils and staff who made this such a special day.

The virtual parade is available for viewing below and Knockskeagh National School can be seen around 12.53 seconds into the video. Also, our gallery displays a snapshot of pictures from our school’s St Patrick Day parade on the day of recording.
