Welcome to Ballyfinnane National School

People who help us!


Last week, Garda Murphy from Castleisland visited us at Ballyfinane N.S. to speak to us about his job as a Garda and what it entails. Garda Murphy showed us his uniform and all the items on his belt that he uses when necessary such as the handcuffs, pepper spray, baton, torch and his walkie talkie.

Garda Murphy contacted his base station in Castleisland  and all pupils got a chance to say hello through the walkie-talkie. He showed us how the handcuffs are used and we had plenty of volunteers to try them on! He spoke to us about Road Safety and safety at Halloween. Thank you to Garda Murphy for donating his time to speak to us.
