On Friday next, 2nd December, A History of Ashton School, Cork written by Dr Alicia StLeger, will be launched. The book launch is open to the public and will take place at 7.30 p.m. at Ashton School. Anyone associated with the school is especially invited to attend.

The history of the school was commissioned a number of years ago, on foot of an idea put forward by the then chairperson of the Board of Management and school co-patron, Dr Paul Colton. With this in mind, school principal, Adrian Landen, together with Dr StLeger called to Bishop Colton on Friday, 25th November to present him with the very first copy of the new history of the school. Dr Colton said: ‘It really is a quality book: beautifully written, handsomely printed, a fascinating read, and full of photographs.’
