In October 2017, Dunsany NS held a reception to welcome back our past pupil Megan Thynne, All Ireland Camogie medal winner. Megan accompanied by her mum Dawn and the winning team manager John Davis, gave an inspiring talk to all pupils about the importance of sport/doing what you enjoy most. Megan talked about the importance of accepting defeat in whatever it is you do and getting back up again and keeping on going. John Davis paid tribute to Megan’s great team spirit and can-do attitude. He told us all what a beautiful and modest person Megan is and how valued she is amongst her team members. Mrs Bockett recalled those very same qualities in Megan while she was a pupil in Dunsany NS.

Congratulations Megan, John and team on your All Ireland Win! A wonderful achievement.

2015 was the first year that Dunsany NS took part in the FAI Meath Schools’ Soccer Competition in MDL, Navan. We entered a girls’ team and a boys’ team. They both put in creditable performances with the boys finishing second in their group. The girls had biting wind and rain to contend with but they still reckoned it was a great day out and would like to go back again next year!

The boys would go back once a week if they could! You’ll see they had some fun when we stayed on a for an extra fun game with Clonard NS…. some of our lads are in blue and yellow… surely not?!

Our sincere thanks to Gerry Keoghan, Lorcan & Aoibheann’s dad who volunteered at the school for all of this term coaching both teams.

Go raibh maith agat Gerry!
