    Congratulations to all of our pre-schoolers that took part in the Yeats' Day celebrations on Wednesday 13th of June! We were very impressed with their performance of the poem 'To A Squirrel At Kyle-Na-No'. Thanks also to Eily Kilgallon who put in a lot of work with the children throughout the year. Well done! 'To A Squirrel At Kyle-Na-No' Come play with me; Why should you run Through the shaking tree As though I'd a gun To strike you dead? When all I would do Is to scratch your head And let you go. William Butler Yeats
