Retirement of Caitlín and Mary Dunphy

The school gathered on Friday, 30 September 2022, to mark the retirement of Múinteoir Caitlín and to pay tribute to Múinteoir Máire Uí Dhonncha. Both teachers have given long and loyal service, over many decades, to the school and its pupils. All of the children held both teachers in the highest esteem and this was reflected in the song that Dara, our fifth-class teacher, composed for the occasion.
