Catholic Schools Week Scoil Iosa Carracastle

Bishop Brendan joined Staff, Pupils and special guests in Carracastle NS (Scoil Íosa) on Wednesday January 29th. This day is set aside as “Grandparents’ Day” in Catholic Schools Week.  We were also joined by teachers from neighbouring schools and Fr John Paul Sheridan (Diocese of Ferns) for the launch of Maura Hyland’s book “Why send your child to a Catholic School?”

It was a lovely gathering.  Bishop Brendan and Fr John Paul spoke of Catholic Education in the modern setting in which it finds itself and its ongoing significance in the lives of so many of our people.

Thanks to School Principal, Marian Maloney, her staff and all who made us all feel so welcome in Carracastle.
