We were delighted to welcome the 2019 Kerry Rose, Sally-Ann Leahy to our school last Thursday. There was great excitement in the school when she arrived. Mrs. O’Dwyer presented her with a bouquet of flowers and we sang the Rose of Tralee for her. Dylan O’Carroll from Junior Infants made a lovely picture for her to wish her good luck in the competition!
Our very own Maya Nolan, from Senior Infants, is a Rosebud for the 2019 Festival! She was delighted to meet Sally-Ann and was also presented with a rose. Sally-Ann met lots of her cousins in the school. She got a big surprise when she met Jack Galway whom she used to babysit! He is in 6th class now. Her mother Mary Barron(RIP) and her grandparents, Mick and Baby Barron (RIP) all attended Sliabh a’Mhadra in the past.
Sally-Ann will make a fabulous Kerry Rose and we wish her the very best of luck!
