The organisers tell me the date is not set yet as they are still collecting names of folk who might be interested. They hope to announce a date shortly and it will be here and in the Reunion page.

Let the organisers know if you are interested in order that they can guage the interest and so the venue.

Hi Sheila I am Apocalypse's mum!! I went to Lieurary School from 73 -80 along with my 2 brothers Allan and Brian. We were there when the new school was built and all the pupils got to lay a brick in the new building!! There was only 3 other pupils in my class and there was a grand total of 28 in the whole school. I can try and give you a list of the people I went to school with if it will help you.
