WELCOME TO OUR
Brigid's, Castleknock, Co. Dublin
St. Brigid's, was founded in 1971. Like the saint of our school we aim
to have a kind, caring atmosphere here. her feast day is on the 1st
of February. A lot of classes weave St. Brigid's crosses. It is said
if you have a cross in your house or classroom it will protect you from
fire. The Church of Ireland church in Castleknock is called after St.
Brigid and in our neighbouring parish of Blanchardstown the Catholic
Church is also St. Brigid's. We also have a St. Brigid's G.A.A. club
near our school. Here boys and girls learn to play hurling and football.
These are sports we only play in Ireland and it is a big part of our
culture. So as you can see, St. Brigid is very important to our school,
parish and culture.

Hi. We are the pupils of Tankerstown National School. There are 4 teachers in our school which lies at the foot of the Galtee Mountains.
Our hobbies include football, hurling, athletics, swimming and reading. Every second Friday all our pupils enjoy paired reading and this is marvellous fun as we help others, and others help us.
children parents and teachers had a yummy, healthy "Breakfast Together"
