First Holy Communion.

Congratulations to all the boys and girls in second class at Vere Foster National School who received the sacrament of first Holy Communion in St Peter & Paul’s Church Tallanstown on Saturday April 27th. It was a lovely ceremony celebrated by Fr Anselm. Special thanks to all their parents and their teacher Ms Mary McArdle for all their help preparing the children for their special day.

Button It

If you have any old buttons please drop them into the Old School in Tallanstown for a project that we are hoping to undertake. Unfortunately the buttons cannot be attached to anything. Many thanks for your support.
