Aglish Old School – Official Re-Opening 3/8/2013

As part of the Aglish Stepping Stones Feile & The Gathering 2013, the committee of Aglish Old School organised the official re-opening of the Old School.  We made contact with as many past pupils as possible and were delighted with the number of people who turned up to celebrate the event with us. Many people meeting up with classmates that they hadn’t seen or spoken to in years.

Thanks especially to anyone who has travelled home for the event.
We would like to thank everyone who has helped  us not just this last couple of weeks but over the last 2 years, you have all been a part of getting the hall open again & we are very proud of the beautiful facility we have now.
We are very grateful to the community for all the help both financially and hands on.
We are especially thankful to North Tipp Leader for our funding & all the help along the way.
As most people know the hall or school had got into a bit of a bad state, but on November 5th 2012 the work started with a vengeance. Thanks to all the contractors for all the work.
We now have a lovely hall for meetings, concerts, dinner dances, craft fair etc….  With many more events in the pipeline. Thanks also to Pierce & Olga Carroll who couldn’t make it on the night, for the free wi-fi for the hall.
A massive thank you to John Ireland who cooked & prepared all the food for the event.
One of our main fundraisers was “The Scroll”. Big thanks to all the past pupils & family & friends who have donated  (still a few places left if you want any names added.) just contact any of the committee members.
We need to thank Monica & Colette McDonnell for all the help in going through the registration books to get the year of registration for all past pupils.
We were very lucky with the weather on the night & after the official opening we were lucky enough to get a group photo outside the hall of most of the past pupils who attended on the night, we have had a number of enquiries from people about getting a copy of the photo, if you or someone you know is interested in getting a copy of the photo please contact Olivia on 0860313786.
The next event to be run out of the hall will be the Edward Raleigh Memorial Tractor Run, more details to follow.
