Pupils from St. Patrick’s N.S. were very fortunate to get the opportunity to travel to Brú na Bóinne for the winter solstice draw again this year. The occasion happens thanks to the thoughtfulness of Clare Tuffy of the Office of Public Works who invites us each time.
The pupils selected were Euan Reilly and Saibh Gough (6th), Senan Kerrigan and Ella Traynor (5th), Thomas Russell and Asena Guneyer (4th), Sean Reilly and Jack Blount (3rd) and Peter Yore and Sarah Devin (2nd).
There were 32,522 applications in the draw. Sixty winners and forty reserves were chosen. Visitors were selected from as far away as New Zealand, Canada, Australia and many European countries.
