2nd class St. Brigid Crosses 2014

The children in 2nd class, Creagh National were very busy, once again, this year making St. Brigid crosses. They made paper crosses painted in bright colours and the traditional rush crosses, under the guidance of their teachers Regina Power and Emer O’Sullivan. The children of the school were very lucky to have Anthony Blade, father of 1st class teacher Antoinette Blade, demonstrate the art of making the traditional St.Brigid Cross from rushes, to all the classes. The crosses were sold for €2 each in shops and businesses around Ballinasloe aswell as at some local masses. Due to high demand children from the higher classes were drafted in during lunchtime and after school to assist in the making extra crosses. This project is now is in its third year and proved to be the most successful year to date. The children were delighted to able to present, the proceeds, €2,622.96, to Ballinasloe Social Services.
