Moment in Time: Halloween fun and games in Scoil Bhríde Portlaoise in 2008

This week’s Moment in Time has brought us back to 2008.

Alf Harvey paid a visit to Scoil Bhríde Portlaoise, where Halloween festivities were in full swing amongst students and staff.

The original Scoil Bhríde building has since been replaced, but photos like these are a testament to the great times many had there.

The kids in these pictures are now on the home straight of the second level education – some are possibly even finished.

And sadly, the principal at the time, Mr Ted Laffey has since passed away. 

Check out the great shots below and let the memories come flooding back.

No doubt there are many recognisable faces.
