Knockainey National School

Pádraig is a pupil here in Knockainey National School. During lockdown he and his father Brian set up the ‘Monday Motivation Paudcast.’ It is a 60 second motivational video which appears every Monday morning online.

Since starting, the ‘Paudcast’ is going from strength to strength with people all around the world tuning in to watch it. Each week we receive emails of praise and admiration here at the school.

Pádraig recently appeared on the RTE show ‘Nationwide’ alongside his Mam and Dad. He also spoke on the Special Olympics World Forum and the Irish Primary Principals’ Network forum as well as featuring on many radio stations.

The staff and students here at Knockainey National School are extremely proud of you Pádraig, you are a true inspiration, and we wait eagerly for your ‘Paudcasts’ every Monday.
