Fuel Your School: Connaught Winner
The first of our winners in the Fuel Your School competition, in association with Electric Ireland and Green Star, represent Connaught. The winning school is Mullaghroe National School, near Gorteen, in Co. Sligo. The school was nominated by one of the pupils, 11-year-old Muirne O Donnell, who wrote the original letter to Mooney. The school only has 37 pupils, and two teachers; almost all of the students come from within two miles of the school.
This morning, Mooney Goes Wild reporter Terry Flanagan, who was the Connaught judge, went to Mullaghroe National School to meet Muirne, headteacher Kevin Gallagher, and all the pupils in the school to handover the cheque of €5000 for their energy costs for the next year...
