Keaveney says goodbye to old school 01.09.08

SENATOR Cecilia Keaveney has bid goodbye to her old primary school.
She said that while she was sad to see the bulldozers demolish St. Bridget's N.S., Moville, she was "heartened" that work on a new state-of-the-art primary school for the town was underway.
"Having spoken to fellow ex pupils I know that there is a sense of nostalgia for those of us who spent our formative years in St Bridget’s National School.
Senator Cecilia Keaveney at her old school. "There are many stories that we can recall, as is the case for all students nationally and internationally, I am sure. However, looking at the site now there have been many changes to the girls schooling in the past decades."
She acknowledged that difficulties would arise until the new school was built.
“While there will be some difficulty in operating Scoil Eoghain out of its current location - all on the former boys' school site - I wish the pupils, staff and parents well in the incoming academic year.
I also wish the contractor here and in Clonmany National School a speedy and safe working environment. I can now point to the fact that I got my Government to demolish my school. It is just as well I was able to help in ensuring the money is there to rebuild it," she added.
