Christmas Fair and Bazaar 2014. The Vicarstown National School Christmas Fair and Bazaar was held on Sunday November 30th. This event has run successively for the past 26 years and continues to be a significant date in the local calendar. It was wonderful to see our past pupils and parents present on the day and the many stalls and exhibitors added to the celebrations. Míle Buíochas to all who contributed to the organisation of the day. A special word of gratitude to Paddy O’ Leary of Tower Shopping Centre for the facilitation of ticket sales.

We would like to welcome our new Principal, Peter Mulcahy to Vicarstown NS, and wish him the very best in the future.
