In all, 75 infants aged four, five, and six were about to go to the collection area when the accident happened.
Mr Kennelly said it appeared somebody was "looking out for the children" as they were all kept safe. ...
Mr Kennelly said that just a short time earlier, the entire school community had gathered in a classroom and said a simple prayer.
The principal is anxiously waiting for a decision by an Bord Pleanala in respect of an application to build a school hall and the prayer service was led by local parish priest, Fr Des Walshe.
"I'm not overly religious, but I certainly believe that prayer saved us here," Mr Kennelly said.

"that prayer saved us here"
It's great to hear some good news. Yesterday there was a miracle outside a primary school near Galway. Here's the report and some amazing pictures from today's Irish Independent, and below, some extracts. Interesting that the bit about the prayer wasn't in all newspapers' reports.
