The annual Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes took place from the 2nd to the 7th September. As is the long standing tradition in Tarbert Comprehensive School, four of our current Leaving Cert students joined the team of helpers who care for the sick there. Nine former pupils were also in attendance. This is a magical experience for everyone who goes-despite the early mornings, hard work and long days! It is an experience of a life-time and as anyone who has been there knows. On departure day from Lourdes, everyone is already planning to return next year or whenever possible. Our sincere thanks to Gerard Stack (Ballyhahill), Michelle McCarthy (Ballylongford),Sr. Frances Day( School Chaplain), Maggie Flavin (Ballylongford) and Jamie Diggins (Tarbert).
