Kinsale Community School students were delighted with a visit from guest speaker Fergus Finlay, Chief Executive of Barnardos, childrens charity on Thursday 1st October. It was a very informative and eye-opening experience for our Transition Year students who learned about the important work being done by the charity in order to improve the rights of children in Ireland. A big thank you to Padraig Fitzgerald and Kinsale Peace Project for giving us the opportunity to hear such a wonderful and inspiring speaker.
