We all know how climate change affects our lives. The recent Hurricane Ophelia is a good example. In Rathangan School we are doing our bit to raise awareness of and reduce climate change.

This ties in well with climate change as it requires us to try walk, cycle or carpool where possible instead of using the cars. We ask that all the families in our community do their bit for climate change. Thank you from all at St Anne's NS.

All Blacks AFC

The under-14s played a very competitive 2: two draw away to Wexford Albion in less than ideal conditions.It was a game of two halves with the wind a major factor. The first goal was created from great work by Matthew Lewis on the wing who picked out Phil Tierney, who took the ball in his stride and lobbed the home keeper for a superb finish. The second was a excellent strike from Tadgh Deegan from outside the box.

Most of the second half chances fell to Albion from which they found the net on two occasions to level the game. Just on full time James Wright in goal made a fantastic save from a Albion free kick to earn the Blacks a deserved draw.

Get Well Soon

Get well soon wishes are sent by the family and friends of 19YR old Mayglass man and St Anne's talented gaelic player Roy Nunn. Roy was knocked down when struck by a car in Dublin and was rushed to the Mater hospital in a critical condition where he gained consciousness after treatment. We wish Roy a speedy recovery.
