Wishing all students who are expecting their results on the 3rd, the very best of luck.
No matter what leaving cert results you get, there are many opportunities available and it's possible to begin studies when the time is right for you. Lorraine Fitzgibbon decided to follow her dream and began her Paramedic Studies in University of Limerick in 2016.
She then began working with the NHS in the UK as an Emergency Medical Technician, at North West Ambulance Service, Bolton. This involved huge upheaval for herself and the family but with their support she completed her
service and finally graduated on 26th August this year. Congratulations and well done Lorraine on your achievements. Lorranie's favourite quote - " Set your goals high, and don't stop till you get there ", Bo Jackson.

Great credit is due to the management committee and volunteers who originally came up with the idea of providing local, affordable and short-term care for individuals and their families. The Respite Centre had to remain locked down for the duration of the pandemic unfortunately. The Centre has since undergone a total transformation and as a result will be re-opening on Wed 22nd Sept. Best of luck to all involved in providing such an invaluable service.
