Joe Duffy of RTÉ did a spectacular job of opening our school art exhibition. Joe was only in the school a few minutes when he seemed to know all our names. It was great to meet the man behind the voice on the radio and we discovered that Joe also paints in his spare time.
All the boys had a picture on display. Local artists and parents like Louise Whelan displayed their work. Mr.Booth our principal and Ms. Kelly Gibson the deputy principal of Ringsend College had pictures on show. Declan MacGabhann who taught us loads of interesting things about about fish a few weeks ago also had a painting in the exhibition. No surprise that it was a painting of two sea-horses. A big ” Thank You” to our Parents’ Association for organising the event. A few days later a card arrived from Joe thanking us for inviting him to open our exhibition!
