Boho kids show cattle dealing skills

ONE of the most lonesome aspects of the school closures for one local school, during the Covid pandenmic was that the children had to leave their pet calves, who they had been feeding and rearing for market!
Killyhommon Primary School, Boho, is in the heart of a farming community, and has always had visits from local farmers to help with lessons in the past.
