Well done to the Basketball team who recently played Rathoe N.S. in their first basketball game of the year.

It was a tight game with it finishing 4 all as a draw. Well done girls!

The girls also played Ballon N.S today in Scoil Phádraig Naofa. They were not victorious today, missing out by only one basket. Thank to Ballon for a great game!


Defibrillator now in Scoil Mhuire Lourdes

We are beyond lucky in our school to have such a dedicated and hard working Parents Association who worked hard in fundraising for a new Defibrillator for the school. It is now located inside the school building and is ready for use in the event of an emergency. Thank you to the PA for giving us such a vital piece of equipment and also to the Tullow First Responders for training the staff here in Scoil Mhurie Lourdes.

Bóthar visit

Thank you to all the girls in Scoil Mhuire Lourdes for making a big effort in fundraising money to give to Bóthar. Niamh cam in today from Bóthar to talk to us about all the work that they do and how our donations of €100 will help families all over the world who do not have as much as we do.
