Last Friday, the 27th of April, we had our annual sponsored walk and run. In the “run” up to this, the children have been working very hard on “The Eur-Run” challenge. Have a look below to see how each class level is progressing.

  • Junior Infants 59km
  • Senior Infants 299km

  • Second Class 622km
