CREAGH COL­LEGE was one of the places on the itin­er­ary of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Bayeux, Mon­sieur Pa­trick Gomont and Madame Chris­tine Cabon-Delacroix, when they vis­ited Gorey last week.

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.

Last Oc­to­ber three stu­dents from the school went to Bayeux on a fact-find­ing trip based around Nor­man his­tory and French cul­ture.

A spokesper­son for Creagh Col­lege told this news­pa­per that the school plans to en­hance the ed­u­ca­tional links be­tween Gorey and Bayeux.

The del­e­gates were ac­com­pa­nied to the col­lege by the Cathaoir­leach of Gorey Mu­nic­i­pal District Coun­cil, Cllr Joe O’Sul­li­van, and Cllr Pip Breen.

‘It was an ex­tremely suc­cess­ful morn­ing all round,’ said the col­lege spokesper­son.

‘Daniel and Eoin were won­der­ful rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Creagh Col­lege and they were as im­pressed with our stu­dents as they were with our school.’

At the French del­e­ga­tion visit to Creagh Col­lege were stu­dent, Daniel Mur­phy, Cllr. Pip Breen, Bayeux deputy Mayor, Madame Chris­tine Cabon-Delacroix, act­ing prin­ci­pal, De­clan O’ Toole, Cathaoir­lach, Cllr.
