On Saturday 6th December the Parents Council organised a highly successful Christmas Fair at Merchants Market, East Wall Road. There is a huge old warehouse there with a wonderful open space with many stalls full to the brim with bric-a-brac of all descriptions from books to kitchen utensils to articles related to the Christmas season. This market space was formerly the site of the Rathborne Candles factory which has since relocated to Blanchardstown.
Under the supervision of Mrs Sue Dolan, Mr Tony Kelly, Mrs Sylvia Christle and Mr & Mrs Alan Reynolds of the Parents Council a group of loyal students helped out with the Joey’s stand. These pupils were: Daragh Reynolds, Conor O’Reilly, Jake Wilson, Daniel Rowe, Dillon Couch, Scott Graham and Daniel McCabe.
The day was a wonderful success and nearly 200 Euro was raised for the school. Many thanks to all who took part, both pupils and parents. Mr Cullen and Mr Quinlan were also present on the day.
