Congratulations to our 5th and 6th class pupils who made their Confirmation on Thursday last, the 16th of March. This was a historic occasion, as it was the first time the Archbishop of Cashel & Emly visited St Anne's Church in Clonmore for a Confirmation Ceremony. We were delighted to be joined on the day by our friends from Killea N.S. and the many people who travelled from near and far to be with us. We are most grateful to Archbishop Kieran O'Reilly for a lovely ceremony and for celebrating Confirmation in Clonmore. Thank you to Fr Hayes, and the staff members of both schools, for preparing the students and organising the day; and to Willie Fogarty and Massie McGrath for the church preparations. A special mention also for our students who sang so well in the school choir and to Mary Joyce and the local church choir.
Finally, we were treated to refreshments in the hall by our Parents' Association. Many thanks to Majella, Joanne, Katie and Johnny for facilitating this and to Noel and the Hall Committee for their generous and continued support. It was a great way for the people of Clonmore and Killea to meet and greet again and was a fitting end to a lovely day.
