On Wednesday 15th of May, Minister for Education Joe McHugh T.D. officially opened the Garden of Remembrance in Firhouse Community College. The garden was first suggested following the sad and untimely death of two members of staff in October 2016 and January 2017. Ms Maher and her Leaving Certificate Applied class first suggested the idea of a Garden of Remembrance and they began work. The Parents’ Council then enthusiastically embraced the idea and got involved. In the meantime they have worked tirelessly in fundraising and seeking sponsorship. A great number of local businesses and organisations have generously embraced and supported the project. Without their help and support the garden could not have been developed and completed to such a high standard. What started out as a ‘small project’ took on a life of its own and with the help and enthusiasm of a great many people it is now nearing completion. The local Mens’ Shed Group in Firhouse also worked with the students. They have done so much hard work over the last couple of months, which they would not have got done without their cheerful help. Some of the TY students have also got involved and have done some Trojan work.
