In 2010, Ms Renee Moran had the wonderful idea of getting the then Sixth Class to make a photographic record of the old school. Over a two week period, the girls photographed our school buildings and grounds in great detail. For the girls themselves, this was a unique opportunity to heighten their visual awareness and to hone their photographic techniques. As the old building was demolished in order to make way for the current building, this publication is now a valuable reference for historians and architects. It is also a valued record for all those who have known and loved Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní). We are grateful to Sheila Nunan, General Secretary of The Irish National Teachers’ Association, for launching the book for us.
