Staff and students from across the county celebrated Fr David Murphy's Silver Jubilee with a mass and ceremony at Carroreigh National School.

Pupils from the school and teachers from across Wexford came together to mark his 25th year as a priest. During the mass, the school choir sang, led readings and presented Fr Murphy with various gifts including booklets and equestrian memorabilia.

Later on, the school held a concert, during which each class entertained the audience with sketches, singing and music. According to Principal Jim Dempsey, Fr Murphy and his family thoroughly enjoyed the event.

'Fr Murphy is extremely involved in the school. He has been Chairperson of the Board of Management since 1998 and is very involved with the day-to-day running of the school,' he added. 'He is a daily visitor to both the classrooms and the staffroom and knows all of the students by name.'

Celebrations for Fr Murphy will continue on Friday, when the parish will hold a ceremony in Camross Hall to mark his Silver Jubilee.
