We must recognise the great running by all the children from our school in all the races.  They all ran fantastic races. 

Scoil Mhuire Murroe would like to take this time to thank the Parents’ Association for the purchase of 36 singlets.  The yellow and blue singlet was quite striking and looked very well on our runners! They could not be missed!
