Chil­dren from Bless­ing­ton put for­ward plenty of ideas for pos­i­tive change as they vis­ited the cor­ri­dors of power in Dublin last week.

The sixth class pupils from Bless­ing­ton No1 NS and their prin­ci­pal Lil­ian Mur­phy vis­ited Deputy Stephen Don­nelly at Le­in­ster House on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 25. They en­joyed a tour of Govern­ment Build­ings be­fore Deputy Don­nelly gave them a talk in the Au­dio Vis­ual Room.

When asked how they they would make life in bet­ter in Bless­ing­ton, the pupils’ an­swers ranged from new swim­ming pools to dance halls. When it came to new laws they’d like to in­tro­duce, they wanted to see bans on plas­tics and poach­ing and even cig­a­rettes.

Stephen Don­nelly said: ‘Such a great bunch and so smart. Their sug­ges­tions on how to im­r­pove County Wick­low are re­ally in­sight­ful and thought­ful. Our fu­ture is def­i­nitely in safe hands’.
