Local History comes to life in the Senior Room

The 100th Anniversary of the Coolbawn Ambush happens on June 18th 2021.

This event occurred near the end of the War of Independence and resulted in the deaths of Sean Hartley (Glenmore)  and Nicholas Mullins (Thomastown) who were IRA volunteers.  The ambush location is marked at the side of the N78, north of Castlecomer.
The senior class in all the primary schools in the locality were invited to submit a project or presentation on an aspect of the ambush which will be put on public display in Castlecomer Library. Check out the work 5th and 6th class completed on this topic below.
