It is a matter of great pride for me to introduce this book marking the Centenary of Kilmurry National School.
Kilmurry School is indeed a worthy subject for the careful research and
preparation which this committee has undertaken in the production of this book.
This commemorative book contains very interesting reading for our past pupils
and their families. In addition, it will provide an invaluable record of some
names, dates, places and events, as it chronicles the key role our school has
played in the lives of the families of this small community over the last
hundred years and more.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who so generously
supported our fund raising activities and in particular those who participated
in our 300 club draw.
A special word of thanks to those committee members who voluntarily and without any material gain gave so freely of their time and resources during the year.
I trust this book will rekindle many a mixed memory of Kilmurry among its
readers at home and abroad. It will provide a catalyst for debate and
controversy, but above all I am confident it will increase in value with the
passing of time as the celebrations of our centenary year fade into history.
