Congratulations to all the pupils from Colaiste Pobail Osrai for all their hard work and their spring clean of the pedestrian and cycle way serving the Fairways, Beech Lawns, the Orchard and Pococke.
On 27th April, 16 first year students, with their teacher Caoimhin, picked up litter along the Fairways walk way. They were participating in Neat Streets, an anti litter programme for Secondary Schools. After 90 minutes 18 bags of rubbish and a trolley had been removed. Great credit is due to the friendly and enthusiastic students of Colaiste Pobail Osrai for the smashing job they did.
