BLESSINGTON’S NO.1 PUPILS VISIT DÁIL
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’.
