Results of the Chase Raffle 2015
The 3rd of December 2015 was an auspicious occasion for our whole school community and for our wider community. We were delighted to welcome Lt. Colonel Virling, Private Berrill and to our school for the presentation of the National Flag and Proclamation. Sixth class pupils provided a guard of honour to welcome the members of the Defence Forces on their arrival and on their departure. Members of the local community joined us for the ceremony and Q & A session, and afterwards for a cup of tea.
Locals recalled with interest the visit of the Defence Forces 50 years ago to the school for the 5oth Anniversary of the Easter Rising. The Proclamation presented to the school on that visit was on display at this 2015 event. Some who were pupils then were in attendance again with us on the day.
A memorable day for all.
Unfortunately due to weather forecast of significant rainfall and assessment of the land this morning, it has been decided to postpone the Dunsany Chase. This decision was taken with due respect to landowners and with the Health and Safety of the participants in mind.
A special visitor will drop in with goodie bags for children @ 2pm.
Please come along
At the launch of the 24th Annual Dunsany/Kilmessan Chase were pupils from Dunsany/Kilmessan National Schools along with top jockey Paul Carberry, successful local trainer Matthew Smith and accompanied by Vice Principal Mr. Donnelly aboard his horse Frank. This year’s Chase will take place on Sunday 13th December, meeting at 1pm for a 1.30pm start. As usual we provide refreshments, raffle, charity auction and plenty of fun afterwards in Dunsany Hall. Whether you have a horse or not come join us on the day! We will not have a lead rein this year.
