WHAT A BIG BREAKFAST!

WHAT A BIG BREAKFAST!

Last Sunday morning’s Big Breakfast fundraiser in Burncourt Community Hall was without any doubt a huge success. From 10am onwards there wasn’t a free table in the hall such was the response to the treat of a cooked breakfast and the freshly baked breads.

It was a great family and social occasion with lots of tea and chat.

Burncourt Community Council would like thank all not just from Burncourt but also those from the local communities who responded so generously to the fundraiser.

None of it would have been possible without the great work done by the team of volunteers both in the kitchen and in the hall.

The Community Council is very appreciative of those who provided sponsorship. It was indeed a marvellous community morning.

All funds raised go to community council projects, particularly repair work to the back roof of the community hall.

OFFICIAL OPENING OF BURNCOURT SCHOOL EXTENSION.

Saturday, May 18, is a date for adding to the diary not only for past, present and future pupils of Burncourt National School but also for everyone in the local community.

The school will be open to everyone from 4pm onwards, that afternoon, so that past pupils can recall old times and it will also give everyone an opportunity to see the current school facilities and the excellent new extension.

The official opening by Pat O’Callaghan and Helen Russell will then take place at 7pm and this will be followed by a blessing performed by Fr. Pat Butler. Mass will follow at 7.30pm to celebrate Helen Russell’s career as a teacher in Burncourt National School and the evening will conclude with refreshments in Burncourt Community Hall.
