Tom Rabbitt

As we are putting this book together a highly respected friend and neighbour of ours has passed away and his death has cast a shadow over the area. He will be missed badly! Tom Rabbitt and indeed all the members of his family have been great friends of the Carnaun School for years. On three occasions they sold part of their land to the school.

Living as near to the school as he was with papers, bottles, sticks and stones from the playground being strewn about his fields not to mind trespassing children and of course the high volume of schoolyard related noise never put Tom in bad humour.

Whether it was children playing, horsemen hunting, fowlers shooting or people walking he was delighted to see them on his farm. “Sure the land will be there after us” he would say. A Noble Man! May God rest his soul!
