Past Pupils, Christopher Donlon, Finian Cronin and John Cosgrove, together with their teacher Carlos O'Gara from Dunmore Community School presented us with a beautiful mud kitchen that the boys built themselves and donated to our school. It was wonderful to see the boys again and to receive such a lovely gift. Our infants were so excited to get it. Thanks to Chris, Finian and John as well as Carlos and Declan in Dunmore CS. Thanks lads!
