'The Echo' newspaper visited Clonburris before the All-Ireland final to capture the excitement and the rivalry between our Dublin and Mayo teachers! Morning Ireland interviewed children and staff and the children sang a song composed by Ms. Hilliard which was broadcast on Thursday 19th September. On Friday 20th September 'independent.ie' visited Clonburris. All the pupils and staff were filmed in the hall singing the new song during 'Jersey Day' and a few teachers were interviewed. Ms. Hilliard made a lovely cake for the Dubs, and also made some Mayo cupcakes!
