“It does not matter about coming first or achieving the highest marks in your class it just matters that each person does their very best and reaches their potential” said Senator Mary White, co-founder of Lir Chocolates, speaking last week at a trade fair in Scoil Mhuire in Buncrana Co. Donegal.
The products that were for sale varied from cakes to jewellery to hand-made rocking chairs, or if you were looking for some pampering and relaxation there was a small beauticians in operation also.
Successful entrepreneur, Senator Mary White was invited to the school by Councillor James Gill who thought she would be a great role-model to have officially open the fair. Senator White addressed the students before the fair began offering them all advice on starting up their own businesses but she encouraged them first to strive to reach third level education.
Senator Mary White would like to thank everyone who was involved in organising the extremely innovative trade fair in Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana, Co. Donegal last Friday the 9th of December. The chief organisers were Ms Antoinette McGonagall a teacher at Scoil Mhuire and teacher and local councillor Mr. James Gill.
“It was a truly inspirational event and it really show-cased the talent of the young people of Ireland. The fair was a credit to Scoil Mhuire as were the pupils who were exceptionally talented and polite students”, said Senator White speaking after the event.”
