Moment in Time: Arles NS in the year 2000

Pupils with the Cumann Na mBunscoil trophy won three years in arow.

Way back in the year 2000, photographer Alf Harvey visited almost every primary school in the couty for regular feature for oneof the local newspapers.

Those photos along with a write up appeared in the paper the following week. It proved a very popular series at the time and now we are digging up those images again. Seventeen years on, those primary students are now well into their 20s (and some could even be into their 30s!).

But the pictures from that time make for great viewing now. We are sure they will bring memories flooding back for those featured.

This week we have come across Arles NS where we’re sure many of our readers will recognise these young faces.
