 A Host of Golden Daffodils

The daffodils shown here are those blooming on the Green in Newcastle, outside St Finian's (CoI), and were photographed last Sunday. They are to be seen in the background of the photo below, growing along the wall. The day before, three pupils from second class in St Finian's National School appeared on the front page of the Irish Times in their 'Daffodil Day' outfits: twins Sophie and Isabella Whyte O'Connor and Roisin Van Son.
