The poet Brendan Kennelly visited the school on Thursday 18th May. He read and spoke about a selection of his poems which are on the leaving cert course for 2019. As always the music was fantastic on the day and Mr Kennelly was particularly touched by a beautiful arrangement of the song 'Raglan Road' by his friend Patrick Kavanagh and 'Raglan Lane' a poem of Mr. Kennelly's written in tribute. 2nd yr student Elina Burykina presented Mr Kennelly with a pencil drawing inspired by his poem 'Begin'. We were joined on the day by retired colleagues who helped to make a very special event.
