President Higgins records message of hope and thanks for students in post-primary education

Schools across Ireland have been closed since the evening of Thursday 12 March - and ours since Thursday March 4th - disrupting the lives of thousands of students all around the country.  In his message to students in post-primary level education President Higgins acknowledges the disruption to the important events in young people’s lives.

The President thanks the students for playing their part in efforts to curtail the spread of the virus and concludes by saying “Stay safe and continue to keep others safe.  The crisis will pass, and out of this dark time will emerge a brighter period ahead for all of us to enjoy.”
