On Wednesday, 8th of March, Paddy Daly, Youth Development Officer with the St. Vincent de Paul, Galway Region visited the school to talk to a group of Transition Year students. Paddy gave a very engaging and informative talk on the history of St. Vincent de Paul, both from an international and national perspective. He engaged with the students very well throughout the talk, inviting their opinions, views and questions on topics ranging from poverty to lonliness and social justice to education. TY's were inspired by his enthusiasm and will hopefully become involved in these issues through project work and fundraising in the future. It is hoped that Paddy will return to speak with other year groups soon.
