For the 20th consecutive year, Cregmore National School hosted a coffee morning, cake sale and monster raffle, with all proceeds donated to St. Vincent de Paul. The event, coordinated by the pupils of 6th class, under the guidance of their teachers Ms McCormack and Mr Madden, proved to be a huge success with a large number of parents, grandparents, past pupils and friends popping into the school hall to feast on some wonderful baking and enjoy the entertainment of both the school choir and the school trad group.
