On Tuesday, Sixth Year students Daniel Murphy and Eoin Fitzpatrick, along with their teachers, Ms. Tomkins and Ms. Donovan, went to Gorey Municipal District Offices to meet-and-greet the visiting French dignitaries.
The visitors were warmly received by members of Gorey Town Council and the school representatives who also included people from Gorey Youth Needs.
Following the formalities in the chamber the visitors went to Creagh College to get a first-hand insight into life in the school.
