All is in order now for the Clounleharde School reunion in Knockdown on this Saturday June 29.  The event will begin at 7 pm with an open air Mass celebrated by past pupil Fr Mikie O’Connor; this will be in the dressing room stand. After Mass all the people who have confirmed that they will be attending will be invited to a cold buffet in the marquee which will be erected in the car park opposite the shop. An overflow table for the latecomers will be set up in the Killeaney clubhouse. There will be a display of old photographs on the night as well a little newsletter in memory of the occasion. After the meal all will adjourn across the road to the Knockdown Arms for drinks, music, song, story, chat. The committee members have been working since last October to make this night a success so they hope that everybody enjoys themselves. It is heartening to see that over twenty are coming home from the USA and England for the event. Bridie Murphy, past pupil, will be photographer for the night, until approximately 10.30 pm so if anybody wants class photos taken, be sure to get to her before then. There will be a sales table in the marquee with local postcards and newsletters and books of local interest for anybody interested. The members are praying for no rain or midges on the night and ask you to pray also! At the moment the weather signs are good for Saturday night, thank God. Let the celebrations begin!

It was with shock and regret that we heard of the sudden death of Con King while in the bog at the weekend. Sincere sympathies to his family.
