Upgrade works are planned for the beautiful disused Cornagilta national school near Tydavnet. The school has been used occasionally in recent years for heritage projects and story telling nights. It is intended to restore the school (built in 1859 by the Rose family to educate children of the Estate workers) so that it can be used more meaningfully and regularly as a lovely parish resource. As funds are very limited, it is hoped to use voluntary labour to complete the project as soon as possible, and maybe it can be used to showcase some of our community assets as part of the 32 county “Pride of Place” competition for which Tydavnet has been nominated. Judging in the competition is on 8th August – so time is very limited. Anyone (particularly past pupils) who has time and skills is very welcome to contribute to this very worthwhile community project. All kinds of skills needed, handymen (or women), cleaning, painting, and generally getting stuck in to complete the project, days, evenings or weekends, all help welcome and very much appreciated. If you have a few hours to spare, and would like to join in, please contact Seamus 087 668 4428 or Marie 087 24 34 517 as soon as possible.
