Calling all Bunclody businessmen

At FCJ High School, we are embarking on a big project with our students and staff.

This is a digital time capsule in which we hope to record our experiences and the lived history of Covid 19.

We have the support and interest of outside agencies including Creative Ireland, Wexford County Council, Wexford County Library Service and most notably Dr Ida Milne of Carlow College, historian, author and lecturer.

We would like to extend the project beyond the school to the wider community. If you are interested in sharing your experiences, as a businessman we would love to hear from you.

This exciting new project will run throughout the school year until Easter and we will have an exhibition of some materials and objects submitted to the Bunclody Library after Easter.

If you are interested, please contact the school and leave a contact email and we will get back to you.
