Killashee School Reunion 14th/15th June: Preparations continue for our School Reunion which is now only weeks away. We ask you again to let us have copies of any photographs you may have of your time at Killashee School. We hope to put together a booklet as a memento of the occasion and due to the time this will take we need to have all photographs by 22nd May so please make a big effort to find and copy anything of interest you may have. On the night of Wednesday, 22nd May we hope to meet at Magans and interview and video some of our past pupils and characters so please come along on that night and bring your stories and bring your photographs as we will need the remaining time to prepare everything – booklet/video for the 14th June. So please don’t delay any longer – get those photographs out! And get them to one of the organisers: Trudy Farrell, Damien Edgeworth, Eilish Neary-Feeley, George McDermott, Dan Magan.
