On Friday, 21st June, Glenahulla National School are holding a public open night to celebrate 140 years since the school was established in 1884, on land donated by local farmer, Michael O’Doherty.

Open to the public, past pupils, friends and neighbours can take the opportunity to reminisce about school days past.

Events get underway at 11am when there will be an official opening and blessing of the classroom extension, the carpark and the astroturf by Bishop William Crean.

Bishop Crean, and those who choose to attend the blessing, will also be treated to a school play performed by some of the pupils, penned by the school principal, Pádraig Fitzgerald. 


Later that day, all are invited to attend the special evening, where a tour of the school facilities will be given and old school photographs and roll books will be available to view. The open evening takes place from 6pm to 9pm.

The board of management of Glenahulla NS are extending the invitation to all members of the school community, past and present, along with those from the community, and look forward to meeting you all.
