Catholic schools across the nation commemorate Catholic Schools week with celebrations, Masses, concerts, prayer meetings and activities for students, families, parishioners and community leaders.

Teachers,  Ms Browne and Mr  Sexton together with the First Year pupils and a host of musicians from Transition Year entertained the patients of Ennistymon Community Hospital with a selection of songs, music, sean nós dancing and brush dancing for over an hour on the 27th of January.
