Ciarán raises county flag
THERE was great excitement at Arklow Boys National School last Friday when former pupil and County Wicklow footballer Ciaran Hyland raised the Garden County Flag at the school.
Ciaran was joined by Anthony Nolan of the Arklow Geraldines/Ballymoney club, who is the club/school link coach. The Garden County Flag is awarded to schools in the county who participate in the coaching and promotion of gaelic games in County Wicklow.
Boys representing all the classes throughout the school were present for the flag raising as were Ms. Loughlin, Principal, Ms. Ireson, Home School Community Liaison, and Mr. McCarthy.
The school is hopeful that some of the pupils will go on to represent their club and county as Ciarán has.
