A MAYORAL RECEPTION is to be held this Monday to honour All-Ireland winners in primary and secondary schools across the Ennis Municipal District.

Coláiste Muire’s All-Ireland Junior B winning team, All-Ireland U16 Cadette A Volleyball champions and their senior cross country team who won silver will be acknowledged at the reception.

Ennis National School’s students who won the National Credit Union primary school’s quiz title in recent weeks and their All-Ireland winning Forza Badminton side will also be honoured.

Louise O’Mahony who won a silver medal at the All-Ireland cross country championships will get recognition at the reception which takes place in the Civic Room of Buttermarket Building, Drumbiggle on Monday afternoon.

Proposals to mark the various contributions were made by Cllr Mary Howard (FG), Cllr Clare Colleran Molloy (FF) and Cllr Ann Norton (IND) before a meeting of the Ennis MD.

“It is important to acknowledge all young students involved in sport, it is a fantastic opportunity to acknowledge what they have achieved. It is something they will always remember throughout their lives,” Cllr Norton stated.

Mayor of the Ennis MD, Cllr Colleran Molloy said, “it will be my honour to host this event”. She added, “I also like to think it will be a celebration of their achievements but an opening of their eyes to local Government”.

There was potential for the reception to grow, Cllr Johnny Flynn (FG) felt, “This could become an annual event because young people are so important”.
