The sun shone; people turned up in their hundreds; trays of cakes and tarts arrived; children danced and sang; memories pleasant and difficult were recalled; tea and wine washed down an enjoyable weekend.

The celebrations in Kealkill, Co Cork, to mark the local national school’s 100th birthday were a highlight for the local community, the school staff and the hard-working voluntary committee who put it all together with support from parents, local businesses and past pupils.

The photos capture some of the air!
