We are grateful for all the support we received, especially the former pupils who invited us into their homes and told us stories of their upbringing in Clarecastle and school life in bygone days. We sincerely hope we have reproduced your stories accurately. The magazine would not have been possible without the input of the wonderful boys and girls and teachers of Clarecastle National School who contributed quality art, prose and poetry. We thank everyone who supplied us with photographs which are an invaluable source of the history of the school down through the years.
We hope you, the reader, will enjoy the memories, stories and the many photographs as much as we enjoyed collecting them. Perhaps you might send a copy to any of the family away from home, especially overseas. (Editorial committee).
