Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní) raises funds for flood relief

Ar Scáth A Chéile a Mhaireann na Daoine  – We all Depend on Each Other

In 2010, Padraig Walshe, president of the Irish Farmers’ Association (IFA) was presented with a cheque for €800 by the pupils of Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní).

Having seen news reports of the devastation caused by flooding, especially in areas along the Shannon, the girls decided to hold a cake sale to raise funds to help alleviate distress in the households and farms affected. Padraig Walshe thanked the pupils and said that the fund would go to those most in need.
