SCOIL SAN ISADÓIR

Congratulations to the children of Scoil San Isadóir on their achievements in the Cumann na mBunscoil football competitions in the first term.

Medals were presented to the children by Tipperary County hurler Brendan Cummins, in the local hall, just before Christmas. Many thanks to Brendan, for giving of his time at such short notice.

Thank you to the school for a great night’s entertainment on December 19 - everyone enjoyed “Christmas on a Budget”.

Special thanks to local businesses O’Dwyer Drapers, Friar St. Cashel, and Martin O’Dwyer Butchers in Cashel. Also, to Michael O’Connor, electrician, for sponsoring raffle prizes.

The children sent a total of E606 to a variety of charities in the first term.

Happy New Year from the school staff and students to all our families and fellow parishioners.
