St. Eunan’s National School 60 Year Celebrations
St Eunan’s NS, Raphoe are celebrating their 60 year anniversary. We will be hosting the celebrations in September/ October 2015. This is a perfect opportunity to promote local history to our children in a fun and interesting way. We are looking for local people to help us organise the event and to pass on their expertise on the history of the school. If you are interested contact Anita Keeve at St Eunan’s NS, on 074 91 45764. As part of this event the children are tracing past pupils all around the world and indeed Ireland. If you have a relative or friend who is a past pupil and who does not now live in Raphoe, it would be great if you could encourage them to send the students a postcard telling us about where they now live and their memories of St Eunan’s NS.
