It will be a challenging time, so we need to be patient and we need to encourage.“It’s inevitable there’s going to be moments of irritation. But we cannot let them take over. The daily vaccine of patience, understanding and a gentle approach will go a long way to ensure the re-opening ofschools will be as positive an experience as possible for all.“We all need to be grateful for those who have risen to the challenge to get the schools ready to meet the Covid-19 disruption. In particular, I want to commend school principals for going way beyond the call of duty in working out the practical arrangements for school re-opening. I am mindful too of pupils, teachers and members of Management Boards who will have to re-adjust to all kinds of new ways.“The school re-opening calls on all of us to do our part by encouraging all concerned. It is good for the children and young people to be resuming a structure that facilitates their personal growth. It is important that we promote all the advice given by the health authorities, especially about hand-washing and social distancing.”He added:  “As schools re-open, I want to assure the pupils, teachers and staff of my prayers and the prayers of the Diocese of Limerick. We appreciate this is both a wonderful time and a challenging time for all concerned.
