Through the Corridors of Time - The Chronicles of CCS

Carndonagh Community School opened on 1st August 1973. In 2018 we will be commemorating and celebrating 45 years of the school. To mark the event, we hope to bring together the recollections and reminiscences of as many of our past pupils (and staff) as possible, with a view to compiling a chronicle of memories.

Tell us your story using our online form...

Our aim is to have contributions from every year – 1973-2018. We have past pupils all over Ireland and all over the world, and also a great many who stayed in Inishowen. Everyone has their story and we want to hear it. Besides the online form (see above), there are several ways to contact us...
