Welcome back after a very stormy weekend both weather wise and politically. Our Sports Hall is being used as a count centre at the moment and is out of use for today and maybe tomorrow.

As you heard last week, Michael Flynn, DP, has been successful in being appointed as Principal of the new DDLETB secondary school for the Blancherdstown area. This is fantastic news for Michael, and we wish him the very best of luck as he commences yet another new chapter in his career. We will miss Michael greatly here in CP Setanta both professionally and as a friend. This is Michaels last week and so on Friday, we will have some tea and cake in the staffroom after school to celebrate Michaels news.
