New Ross Standard - - NEWS - By DAVID LOOBY

CUP winning Car­low hurlers joined in on the cel­e­bra­tions with Scoil Mol­ing- Glynn pupils as they helped raise the school’s fourth green flag for their ef­forts in rais­ing aware­ness around the theme of travel to and from school.

The work of the staff, pupils and Green School com­mit­tee was com­mended at the well at­tended event.

The school has now em­barked on the next green flag jour­ney which is based on bio­di­ver­sity in schools. The school has al­ready set up a gar­den­ing club to be­gin this work and have Eanna Ni Lamhna visit­ing re­cently to ex­plore the lo­cal nat­u­ral her­itage in autumn.

New school prin­ci­pal Sinéad Lam­bert Mur­phy thanked Paul Doyle and Séa­mus Mur­phy, two lo­cal county Car­low hurlers, for at­tend­ing with the cups on the day. Ms Mur­phy said: ‘ This added to the sense of oc­ca­sion. It was a great day for the whole school com­mu­nity!’
