"None" can be singular or plural, depending on the noun or pronoun to which it refers. Formal usage typically uses the singular, but either one is acceptable.

A general rule of thumb is as follows:
-If the noun/pronoun is uncountable, use the singular. ("None of the hay has been eaten.")
-If the noun/pronoun is countable, you may use either one. ("None of the horses is/are very hungry.")
