At a special school assembly in St Mary’s Church of Ireland School, Carrigaline, County Cork, today, 4th October, the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, a date which is also marked as World Animal Day, Mrs Helen Morgan presented a beautiful framed Tapestry of Noah’s Ark to the children of the School.  This amazing work took Mrs Morgan 3 months to complete.

The children were very impressed with all of the animals depicted on it. They were also extremely impressed when Mrs Morgan told them she was 95 years old! The children have already seen and admired Mrs Morgan’s handiwork on many of the Rector’s stoles and are now delighted to have their very own masterpiece.
