Dunsany Chase 2016

Dunsany Chase 2016 marked the 25th anniversary of this very popular event first started by the late Rev. Fr. Murchan. We thank all those involved with the Chase over the years, landowners, sponsors, local families, supporters, riders, committee members, Gardaí, vets, farriers, course planners, etc… We are delighted to have been able to honour all those involved at a well attended Chase Dinner Dance on 11 November 2016.

Presentation to Pierce Bolger of Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind 2014

We saw school year 2013/14 out in great style. After our open-air Mass, attended by parishioners, pupils and teachers, local man Pierce Bolger brought along his guide-dog Whiskey and hosted a great Q & A session. Pierce is a great character – he had all of us in stitches! He told us all about the very serious business of the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind Association too. We raised over €280 for the Association through our Sports Day frolics.
