Sun, fun and memories at Nano Nagle

Last Friday marked a special day for members of Listowel’s Nano Nagle Special National School as they held their family fun day - which fell on the hottest day of the year so far.

A large crowd attended the event and they enjoyed ice-cream, played a variety of games, spent time catching up with other families and enjoyed the very best of the sunshine.

The family fun day was organised by the Parents Association and it was the second time it was held in the school. This year, knowing that the weather would be on their side, the organisers added more games and events. Dawn Harnett, secretary of the Nano Nagle Parents Association, says it was a lovely occasion.
