A SIXTEEN-year-long wait came to end at John F Kennedy Memorial School, as 250 students moved into its new state-of-the-art building.

Since its construction in the late 1960s to commemorate the visit to Limerick by the former American president, the school has had to make do with temporary accommodation.

But now, students and teachers at the school are getting used to state-of-the-art accommodation. The new courtyard style building includes 11 classrooms, a sports hall and adjacent facilities.

Speaking after the students moved into the school, Bill Reidy, principal, said he was thrilled and delighted.

“It’s a marvellous facility. It is designed with the children at the focal point. It is a school about facilities,” he said.
