Conor Commane (6th class) is the New National Record Holder and Gold Medalist in the   U-14 Long Jump . Conor led the field from his very first jump 5.31 and was a sure winner. Conor is son of Mark and Linda Commane who were both on the sidelines urging him on.  Conor jumped an incredible 5.68 a New National Indoors record at that age group.

Conor also competed in the U-14 boys 60m. Conor won his heat comfortably and progressed to the final.  After a false start they all settled back into the blocks.  Conor again showed his class and won with ease in a time of 7.69 and a new Personal Best.  

Well done Conor on a great performance!

Ireland 2016 - National Flag-raising ceremony


As part of the Ireland 2016 commemorative programme, Holy Family School will hold its Proclamation Day on Wednesday, March 16th at 11.00 a.m.  Before Christmas our school received its National Flag and a copy of the original Proclamation from members of the defence forces. 

On Wednesday, proclamation day will be marked by a special National Flag-raising ceremony on the school grounds. 

We invite you the parents to this special event which affords all of us an opportunity to reflect upon the events of 100 years ago.
