Olympian and Bishop Join Forces in Cork to Open and Bless Soft Surface Play Area at Their Old Primary School

St. Luke’s National School, Douglas, Cork recently developed a specialised soft surface play area for the children of the school.

Two past pupils of the school – John Jermyn, member of the Irish Olympic Hockey team, and our school Patron, Bishop Paul Colton – were present.  John Jermyn performed the official opening, and Bishop Colton blessed our new play area.

The development of this area was made possible through extensive fundraising by the Parents’ Association and the support of parents and local businesses.The area was named ‘Inis Beag’ or ‘Little Island’; this is a special place for the pupils and greatly enhances the school facilities.
