We were all saddened today when we learned of the passing of Rev Fr. Diarmuid Connolly in the early hours of the morning in Elm Green Nursing home.
Fr, Connolly was a much loved member of our school and parish community since his arrival as parish priest in 1984. For many years he celebrated masses, communions, confirmations and carols services with our staff and pupils and continued to do so long after his retirement. The last celebration we enjoyed with him was his 90th birthday when our choir performed a special concert in his honour.
We remember him with admiration and affection and we extend our sympathies to all his family and friends.
