On Wednesday, the 25th of September, we visited Clogherhead Beach. We witnessed the launch of the new RNLI lifeboat. The pupils took part in a variety of educational and fun activities. It was a great day for everyone involved.
This year’s Summer Fete will take place this Sunday, 16 June at our school.
All are welcome to our celebration of the completion of another school year at St Finian’s.
Bouncy Castles, BBQ, Face Painting, Ice Cream and much more will make for a great day.
So join us on Sunday from 2pm to 5pm at St Finian’s NS, Dillonstown
