What's Was Planned?
Commencing July 30th 1999 was a fun filled gala week reuniting friends and relatives of yesteryear. Many of the students who filled the classrooms of Cornamon, Loughross, Brockagh, Cullentra, Tawyinshinnagh, Carrickingear and in more recent years St. Michael's, are now spread across the world. Many of these 'wild geese' returned to Glenfarne for this week.
