Ardscoil Mhuire Ballinasloe Walk Raises €4,500

The students and staff of Ardscoil Mhuire, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway took to the streets and side roads of Ballinasloe recently and raised €4,500 in the process!

The entire school body donned their high-vis vests and walked eight kilometres to raise funds for on-going school development. 

The second annual sponsored walk was part of the Mercy Day celebrations that commemorate the opening of the first Mercy school by Catherine McAuley and honour the contribution to education of the Sisters of Mercy throughout the world.

The school community came together in the morning to celebrate mass and were joined by local members of the Mercy order.
