We were delighted to have many past staff who taught with Sr. Rosario, Sr. Rosario’s family members, students and their families, Presentation Sisters, Local Community Guards, Lucan Tidy Towns & our Parents Association join us for this special day. Thankfully, the rain clouds disappeared just on time for the cutting of the ribbon. We look forward to using the garden for some quiet time in the days to come!

This visit normally takes place during 4th Year but unfortunately, was not possible due to Covid.
