Throughout April there are a number of events planned nationally. Irish Autism Action is fundraising by selling blue noses.  The GAA are hoping to set a World Record on the most people wearing Blue Noses at Croke Park on Sunday 27th April. 

The noses are available for €2 in Xtra-vision / HMV stores, and Eddie Rocket Diners with all proceeds going to Irish Autism Action.

(Has anyone noticed that Ballyroan Parish Church is now lit in Blue at night for this month?)

THERE IS NO MONEY REQUIRED IN SCHOOL ON FRIDAY.
