Ballyhahill NS at the weekend I could not help but notice the beautiful mural which the pupils are doing outside on the boundary wall. It’s not finished yet so they are depending on fine weather to finish it! Oh Oh. The mural will depict the Abha Bhán river, the bridge, native animals and birds and an excerpt of poetry by the poet Gerald Griffin. Well done to the teachers and pupils for using their creativity in this way. When they grow up and leave the school they will always be able to say they left their mark on it!
