Energy Tip For The Week.

The energy tip for this week from the green school committee in Scoil Lua Naofa Lorrha is Draught proof windows and external doors and make sure window frames and glazing are tight fitting to prevent heat loss. The pupils are working very hard to raise the second green flag outside their school come the summer.

We had a very enjoyable day out on Sunday for our Christmas lunch. Thanks to the usual high standard of organisation it was a great social occasion. We were joined by our friends from Portumna Carrig Cloughjordan and Limerick. The lunch served by Dooly’s Hotel was superb. Great music by Pat and Richie. A good day out for all.
