Mr. Brunnock – RIP

As you are already aware, we will lay to rest our colleague Paul, this Sunday in Rathgormack. Even though only with us for two years, Paul was already a great colleague and gentleman with many strings to his bow. He will be greatly missed at our school. Paul’s two classes have now entered secondary school and we have notified their families of his untimely death. The family and indeed ourselves appreciate the many kind tributes published by people on this side of the Comeraghs, in memory of Paul, on our Facebook page or indeed at
