St Mary’s Secondary School A trip down memory lane

Hi there and céad míle fáilte to Memories of St Mary’s.

I am setting up this website in an attempt to gather together as much information as possible about St Mary’s secondary school, Askeaton from its founding in 1940 through to its rebirth as Coláiste Mhuire in 1994.

It is a mammoth task and one which will never be complete, but, as a certain lady said, ‘never put off until tomorrow what you can do today’ and ‘all that you do, do with your might, things done by half are never done right’, so we’ll try!!.

The success of this venture lies totally with you, the readers, past pupils, teachers and friends of St Mary’s. Without your continuing contributions, of photographs and stories, there will be no memories gathered.

In advance, I apologise for errors, omissions and any offense which may be caused, albeit unintentionally to anyone.

Ps: Let’s do this NOW while ‘Nora bean’ aka Mrs Hawkes, now 97 years young, is still around to get the red biro to it 😂😂

I have also set up a FB page also to help encourage interaction.
