Hurricane Ophelia – School Closure Monday 16th October

Corballa National School will be closed on Monday 16th October due to our proximity to the red weather alert for Mayo and the additional risk of flying debris from exposed roof tiles and building materials onsite for the ongoing extension work.  We regret the inconvenience to parents but feel we must put children’s safety first given these exceptional circumstances. 

Hurricane Ophelia is due to make landfall in Ireland on Monday and is predicted to be one of the worst storms we have seen in more than 50 years.  Met Éireann has issued a red weather alert for eight counties, as well as status orange and status yellow warnings for other counties which are subject to update as the storm’s progress is tracked.
