Taoiseach Enda Kenny and MEP Jim Higgins were welcomed to Craggagh NS by a colourful guard of honour put on by the school’s younger pupils.
During his visit they met with members of the school community and were treated to an exhibition of the pupils’ Blue Star projects and artwork from the entire school.
