Ballincollig Community School were delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor Councillor John Sheehan to our school recently. This was a historic event as it was the first time we have welcomed the Lord Mayor since the expansion of the city boundaries in January.
Student Council members asked the Lord Mayor about the highlights of his year in office and as well as the school visits he spoke of meeting children rescued by Mary Elmes when the Mary Elmes bridge was opened in Cork earlier this year.
The Lord Mayor presented Ms. Lowney with a framed picture of previous Lord Mayors Terence McSweeney and Tomás McCurtain. The anniversary of their deaths during the Irish War of Independence takes place in 2020.
