St Patricks Day 2024

St Patrick’s Day parade this year was something to cherish with so many colourful and vibrant entries. 

The theme for this year’s St Patricks Day parade was “Peace”.

As part of our parade entry,  the pupils made a huge effort and dressed up as native Irish animals. Our slogan was “Animals Living in Harmony ” as gaeilge “An hainmhithe le chéile”. The pupils made colourful masks in the lead up to the parade.  As well as this, our pupils learned a dance routine to the song “I tell my Ma when I go home”. It was an amazing spectacle huge thanks must go to Miss Ambrose for her help with the routine and of course, our fantastic pupils who performed it so well on the day. 

Afterwards we were delighted to hear that our entry received 3rd prize. Well done to all pupils and staff who made this such a special day.

Our gallery displays a snapshot of pictures from our school’s display in the  St Patrick Day parade in Clonakilty.
