On Thursday, June 26th, we held a very special presentation ceremony to honour Fr. Michael Sheerin on his Golden Jubilee. This was a very moving and beautiful ceremony, which featured an excellent dramatisation by 5th and 6th class, singing from the choir, a piece from the tin whistle group, speeches from our principal and our Board of Management Chairperson. It was also attended by representatives from our Board and Parent Association. We finished by presenting Fr. Sheerin with a beautiful framed edition of a poem by his favourite poet, local footballing legend and Newtown N.S. past-pupil, Paddy Meegan. The warm welcome our pupils always extend to Fr. Sheerin when he visits is a credit to him. We take this opportunity to extend our congratulations to Fr. Sheerin on reaching this milestone and to thank him for all he does for our school.
