10 Slane N.S. pupils from 2nd to 6th class were picked out of the hat and got to visit Newgrange last week to pick out the lucky visitors to the winter solstice this year. Pupils from Knockcommon and Donore N.S. were also present. The 50 lucky winners were announced by Minister Simon Harris. 50 reserve places were also drawn. The winners were from as far away as Australia, Canada, USA and as close as Drogheda! The pupils also got to meet Simon Harris T.D. (whom some of the pupils thought was Ryan Tubridy).
