Today (Friday) Bunscoil na Cathrach will open for the children of Cahir.
To mark the occasion, the children and staff will parade from the Parish Rooms to their new school, through the Square, up Clonmel Rd., into Market St. and access the school through the Boys School.
This has been a long time coming and school management have thanked all involved.
The new school means that in the future boys and girls in the Cahir area will all attend the same primary school. The amalgamation of Our Lady of Mercy Primary School and Cahir Boys National School has been in the pipeline for decades.
The construction works will continue for several more months to complete the entrance and traffic management area.
