Stations of the Cross

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 22nd March 2018

We do stations of the cross every second year with Fybough school during lent. We do the stations of the cross the year we don’t have the Confirmation. The stations describe the journey that Jesus had from when he was sentenced to death to when he Rose from the dead. There are 14 stations. We share jobs between the two schools like the cross bearer, two candle bearers and the readers. The cross and Candle bearers walk around to the 14 stations while the readers read about the stations.  Some people travel to Jerusalem to pray or pay tribute to the pain Jesus suffered. Traditionally, the path that Jesus took is called Via Dolorose ( Latin for way of grief or way of suffering)

Mór Shiúl Lá le Paidraig

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 21st March 2018

Ar an Sathairn, bhí Mór Shiúl Lá le Pádraig ar siúl i mBaile an Mhuilinn. Chuir gach duine an sheamróg agus éadaí glasa orthu ag dul go dtí pharáid. Tósaíonn an Mór Shiúl i mBaile an Mhuilinn aga a deich a chlog. Ag a dó dheag a chlog, téann an Mór Shiúl go dtí an Caisleán na Mainge. Bhí na scoileanna go léir ag béiceadh agus ag screadadh le háthas sa pharáid! Bhí gach rud ar fheabhas!

On Tuesday the 13th of March the Green Schools Committee announced the citizen of the month and it was Keelan Foley from 6th class who won the trophy. You get to keep it for the month and hand it back for the next person. They announce the citizen of the month every month. Last month it was Luke Costello from Junior Infants we were so happy for him.
