On Friday morning students and staff of Coláiste Dún an Rí bid farewell to there temporary accomodation and moved into our state of the art new building. There was scenes of delight as many locals came out to watch students walk through the gates of their new school. This school has been the dream of many people around Kingscourt, Shercock, Magheracloon, Meath Hill and the surrounding hinterland for a long number of years. Friday 20 October was the culmination of over forty years of work by those within the community and CMETB. On arrival students were greeted by the Chairperson of the CMETB Mr Clifford Kelly.
