Lá 'le Valintín

St Valentine's day is celebrated on February 14th and it is a day on which people express their fondness for each other. There are a few theories about the origin of St. Valentine's day, one being that Valentine was a priest who defied Emperor Claudius' orders by performing weddings for Roman soldiers. He was imprisoned and was executed on February 14th. Before he was executed, he sent a letter to his friend and signed it 'Your Valentine.' These words are still used on cards today. Fifth and sixth class made some Valentine's Day Heart baskets and some stained glass tissue paper hearts.

Cartographers in Corofin N.S.

Lá 'le Bríde

St Brigid's Day is celebrated on February 1st, the first day of Spring. St. Brigid was born in Co. Louth and settled in Co. Kildare where she built a church and convent. She was a kind woman who spent her life helping other people.The tradition of making St. Brigid's day crosses is a long standing one in Corofin National School. Here are some pictures of fifth and sixth class making their St. Brigid's Day crosses from rushes, just like St. Brigid did all those years ago. Ms Shannon's class also made St. Brigid's crosses and these can be seen in the classes section under her class.
