THERE was great excitement on Friday as Scoil Mhichil Ciosog in Ennis turned pink to raise some much needed funds and awareness for breast cancer.

The Clare Echo caught up with Ranga 3 at the Clare County Library where they sang a few songs and showed off their pink outfits.

Third class students were among up to 400 pupils who got involved in events on Friday.

Teacher Aoife De Butler told The Clare Echo, “Ranga a Trí and the entire school are dressing up in pink today to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Múinteoir Carmel is in charge of the project in the school and she distributes the money between various charities and organisations.”

A big well done to everyone involved!
