We, at Glencastle N.S and Special Classes, would like to express our gratitude to all who contributed to the success of our recent charity cycle. We would especially like to thank our sponsors, from the business community of Erris and its Exiles, who generously donated services, goods and funding. A special word of thanks to Kiltane G.A.A for the use of their clubhouse on the day. Thank you to those who donated refreshments. We appreciated the services of Belmullet Garda, Ballyglass Coast Guard and all those who provided support vehicles on the day. Finally, a huge thank you to all the cyclists who made the event possible with their enthusiastic participation and fundraising. The entire event raised the sum of €15,804.

All our children are like Butterflies in the wind

Some can fly higher than others;

Each one flies the best they can,

A journey we all share together.

Why compare one against the other


Each one is different!

Each one is special!

Each one makes us proud!

Each one has their unique place within our school.

Inclusion works to the advantage of everyone.

We all have things to learn and we all have something to teach.
