Visit to Knightsbridge to present Gathering scroll to Mrs. Mona Ennis ( neé Englishby)

Mrs. Mona Ennis ( neé Englishby)

On the afternoon of Sunday November 10th a few committee members from the Gathering  and pupils from Dunsany N.S. took a trip to Knightsbridge  Nursing Home to visit Mrs. Mona Ennis (neé Englishby).  Mrs. Ennis was  a past pupil of Dunsany N.S. from many years ago  and  was unable to attend our Gathering event on September 21st.    Her family contacted us  to arrange a meeting to present her with her scroll.  Mrs. Ennis was in great spirits on the day and was delighted with her scroll, she could tell us of many memories from her childhood school days.  She also gave a great account of all the neighbours she had when she lived on the Old Road in Dunsany.  Her family were most pleasant and had a great welcome for us on the day.  Mrs. Ennis’s son & grandson  travelled from Scotland and her daughters from Kildare and Wexford.  Mrs. Ennis really enjoyed the chat with us, and us with her.  There  will be a big birthday to  celebrate in January as she will reach  her 90th birthday.  We wish her and her family all the best wishes for the future and thank them and The Knightsbridge Nursing Home for their hospitality on the day.

We are delighted that our recent Gathering passed off well.  We thank you all for attending in such numbers and ensuring the pupils presented for duty in the choir that evening.  We are very pleased with the lovely choir they provided during Mass and it was said many times that “the Infants stole the show!”  They all looked so smart in their uniforms too. A lovely evening was had by all. We all agree that it’s lovely to see the school building buzzing with people. We would like to thank all those who sent lovely kind letters and mails to say how much you all enjoyed this event.


Grateful thanks to all who made this evening possible. 

Here are some photos from that beautiful sunny evening on September 21st 2013
