    The children in Fourth Class in Scoil Oilibhéir have recently put the finishing touches to a project they did for the Discover Cork Heritage Project entitled “The Church of The Annunciation”.  
They researched every aspect of the church. They learned about St. Nicholas’ Church, William Dwyer and Séamus Murphy. 
They met and interviewed many people including many older residents of Blackpool and members of Seamus Murphy’s family.
The children and their teachers really enjoyed working on the project and are very grateful to everybody who helped them.
It will be on display in Blackpool Library until 14 March.
