A huge thank you to Mr Nolan and especially Corporal Leon Deere (Past Pupil of St Fiacc’s N.S) for organising an amazing trip to the Curragh Army Base for 6th class students. We saw Michael Collins’ armoured Rolls Royce car along with a massive display of military weapons and got a tour around the modern history museum. Children got some hands on action with ration packs, weapons and equipment as well as having a a tour of a very modern and sophisticated army tank. Corporal Deere and his colleagues really put on a great show for all the children and it was both interesting and lots of fun. Children got a great appreciation of conditions and life in the army. It was a super experience for all!

Holly’s Presentation at Assembly

holly

My name is Holly and I am seven years old.  I am Type 1 Diabetic and November 14th was World Diabetic Awareness Day.  Nobody knows the causes for Type 1 Diabetes yet but it is NOT from eating too much sugar. It is an auto-immune disease.  When I was four years old, my pancreas stopped producing insulin.  Without insulin, the glucose from the food I eat stays in my blood, making me feel very unwell.  People with Type 1 Diabetes have to inject insulin into their bodies every day to stay alive.  I used to get six injections a day but now I have a pump attached to my body which gives me my insulin.  I have to prick my finger lots of times every day to check my blood.  If the glucose level is too low, I can go unconscious.  If it is too high, it’s also very dangerous.

                                                                          Type 1 Diabetes is not contagious; nor do you develop it from eating too much sugar.  There is no cure for Type 1 Diabetes but people with it can grow up to be anything that they want to be in life.  Maybe I’ll grow up and find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.

                                                                          I am so lucky, my family, my friends, my teacher Ms. Frayne, my SNA Niamh and everyone here in St. Fiacc’s look after me so well.

Thank you for reading my story,

Holly

  • items from Carlow’s Sugar Factory, which operated for almost 80 years;
  • the smoking pipe of Captain Myles Keogh, killed at the Battle of Little Big Horn;
  • items relating to John Tyndall, the Carlow scientist who discovered the greenhouse effect;
