Pupils attending St. Joseph's of Glenealy continued their Travel theme as part of the Green School Programme and were granted a bike shelter by An Taisce for their efforts.

The official opening of the shelter took place on Tuesday with Cllr. Jimmy O'Shaughnessy and Cllr. Pat Casey in attendance. Special guest of honour was Naoise Sheridan, National Sprint and 500 cycling champion. Despite not being much older than the St. Joseph's pupils, Naoise impressed everyone present as she outlined how she has set her sights on reaching the 2020 Olympics.

St. Joseph's cycle to school programme was launched in June, with pupils cycling to school every Wednesday. Despite Tuesday's heavy rainfall, there were still 25 bicycles and 3 scooters parked on school grounds prior to the official opening of the bike shelter, demonstrating just how seriously the pupils are taking the Green Schools travel theme.
