Last days of Glasdrumman school

TWO events have been organised to mark the last days of St Mary's Primary School in Glasdrumman, Co Down, before it becomes part of an amalgamation with two of its counterparts in the parish of Lower Mourne

Past pupils of the school, which originally dates back to 1855, are staging a reunion for over 18s in the neighbouring AOH hall tomorrow (Saturday), starting at 7.30pm, with the admission charge of £7 including a light supper.

A special Mass is to take place in St Mary's Church the following Wednesday, June 13, also at 7.30pm, with a reception afterwards in the school. The guest speaker will be Irish News editor and former St Mary's pupil Noel Doran.
