Retirement – Mary Molloy

After 16 years of taking care of our school, Mary Molloy has retired.

Mary has seen huge changes during her time in Kilcleagh N.S.

She celebrated our joys and mourned our sorrows with us.  She took a personal interest on each and everyone of us and genuinely cared.  She loved the company of the children and always had a kind word for them. We had a little good bye gathering with her on Thursday 19th ( see pictures).

We wish Mary a long, healthy and fulfilled retirement.

Confirmation 2020

Confirmation 2020

At the end of a summer of uncertainty on August 15th the children from 6th class finally received the sacrament of Confirmation in St. Ciaran’s Church.

Mons. Noonan welcomed everybody warmly and told us that this was the first time Confirmation had ever been celebrated in there.

Our 17 wonderful young people also graduated from primary school and were presented with their certificates by Mrs. Bradley.

It was a joy to meet them again and wish them the very best as they move on to the next phase in life. We will miss them!




First morning

We have all settled in wonderfully & are so glad to be back!

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Congratulations to all of the children in 2nd class who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation last night, Tuesday 3rd March. Ms. O’Neill was very proud of them all as they had worked very hard to prepare. Here are some photos from the church.


4F Walk

Many thanks to all who turned out for our 4F walk from our new starting point at Castledaly GAA pitch and a very special thanks to the local Community Garda Conor Staunton who assisted us with safe practices this morning. The flashing blue lights cheered us all on an otherwise dreary wet morning and we look forward to welcoming more walkers in the months ahead.

Here are some photos of the event.     


Pancake Day

Tuesday 25th February was a very exciting day in Junior & Senior Infants.

It was Pancake Day.

We had started preparing on Monday by learning a rhyme about making pancakes. We listened to a story about a very naughty pancake who didn’t want to be eaten!

We even did a Pancake Dance – youtube/watch?v=vPccTY3sph4

On Pancake Tuesday we mixed flour, cracked eggs, poured milk and made a beautiful batter.

Then we got cooking and deciding on the most delicious toppings – chocolate sauce was our favourite!

We had a super day and learned lots.

Have a look at our photographs…


Love Day

Friday 14th February was “Love” day in Junior and Senior Infants.

We listened to a story call “Guess How Much I Love You” about a little brown hare and his Daddy.

We learned a new song to sing to our Mammies and Daddies – “Roses Are Red.”

Then we made beautiful hearts to show them how much we love them.

Last of all Ms. O’Connell painted love hearts on our faces so everyone would know it was a very special day.

Have a look at our photos.
