SCOIL NAOMH EIRC
A Big Warm Welcome to all our new Junior infants to Scoil Naomh Eirc. We were so happy to welcome fourteen beautiful new pupils to the school on the first September. All the children have settled in very well and are getting used to the long day at school. They are making friends and have adapted very quickly to the school routine. They had a busy week as they played, explored, sang and listened to stories with their teacher Mrs O’Carroll. Hopefully, their time in Scoil Naomh Eirc will be both a very enjoyable and successful experience.
