Eily’s Report – 5th December

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my Report.

The fiftieth anniversary celebrations of our Community School were indeed a very Star-studded glittering affair. Held in the first day of December 2023. At the massive Gym Hall in the school complex. It was a mega undertaking by any standards. Nursing a bad heavy flulike cold, I wasn’t there for the early proceedings of the day, so I can’t speak for them.  But I’m led to believe that they went on all day following the raising of the flag at 11 am. In the Hall there was a buzz of excitement before the show started. The frosty night outside did nothing to cool the excitement that people felt at running into old friends, people they shared years of learning with, before spreading out all over the world to make their living. Few things compare to the joy of meeting up with past school friends and recalling things of the past.
