50 years of school memories celebrated

Memories flowed and former classmates renewed friendships as Our Lady of Mercy Primary School celebrated it's 50th anniversary.

Last Friday the school invited members of the community that had connections with the school over the past 50 years to the special celebrations.

There has been much activity in the school since it opened in 1966 and many generations have walked its halls there over the years.

It was fantastic to see the past pupils, parents and many of the staff members from over the years as well as Boards of Management and Parents' Council (past and present) present for their special day.

After Mass was celebrated in St. Mary's Parish Church all descended on the school hall for delicious, homemade refreshments. To celebrate events that took place over a 50 year span there were some beautiful displays made by the current pupils to see, as well as many old photos and old school roll books to examine in the colourfully decorated school hall. There was also much talking, laughing and reminiscing! Well done to everyone involved, it was enjoyed by one and all.
