Today marked a special event here in Emo National School as  the children celebrated the launch of our
very first cookbook called ‘Family Favourites’. There was great excitement as we gathered and
watched a presentation of the cookbook and then we got to see the first printed copy. The Parents
Association thanked all the children who contributed to the book with Art and Recipes. They would
like to extend that gratitude to the parents, grandparents and school staff who contributed too. We
also had a surprise video message from Chef Kevin Dundon of Dunbrody House Hotel, who wished
the children the best of luck with the launch today. The party continued back in the classrooms
where they had some treats. See some of our photos below.


The Parents Association would like to take this opportunity to invite you to our Launch Night next
Thursday 2nd March at 7.30pm in the Killeshin Hotel, Portlaoise. An exciting, engaging evening is
planned with Eileen Dunne and Darina Allen helping us launch our cookbook. There will be a drinks
reception on arrival and a raffle on the night with some fantastic prices including a luxurious stay for
2 in Ballyfin Demesne! It is completely free to attend, the Cookbooks will be on sale on the night for
€15 and on Aladdin and various locations locally. Every cent raised from the sales going directly to
the school children at Emo N.S. and to the school’s new ASD unit. We would really appreciate it if
you could show your support. Note that as this is a night time event and alcohol will be served, the
Hotel has advised that no children will be permitted to attend, so book the babysitters now and
come join us for a brilliant night!
