Turning of the Sod Ceremony

There was great excitement this week as we had a momentous day in Scoil Náisiúnta Bhaile Chláir na Gaillimhe. The first sod was turned on the school’s exciting new building project. The ceremony took place on our new site and was attended by excited pupils from Junior Infants along with their class teachers Ms. Moylan and Ms. O’ Brien, Rev. Canon Ian O’ Neill, Chairperson, Mr. Phillip Cribbin, Acting Principal Ms. Sheila Hession and the building contractors. Building has now commenced and we are really looking forward to the opening of our new school!
