Bishop Gavin Comes to Visit

Today Scoil Barra were delighted to welcome the new Bishop of Cork and Ross, Bishop Fintan Gavin. After receiving a warm welcome from our Student Council, Bishop Gavin addressed the students of 5th and 6th class, sharing his story of how he came to be Bishop of our diocese. Mrs O’Sullivan thanked Bishop Gavin for visiting us and gave special praise to both himself and Fr George for giving so much to the people of Ballincollig. In true Scoil Barra style, we bid the Bishop farewell by singing our song “Smile”. We would like to thank Bishop Gavin for visiting us and wish him all the best in his new role as Bishop of Cork and Ross.
