In Memory of Father Jim


Remembering Father Jim

Fr. Jim, our Priest died this year.  He is very badly missed in our school.  Fr. Jim was a very nice and generous man.  He went over to South America every year to help the people over there. He made friends over there and always went back to see them.  He always helped charities.  Fr. Jim was the kind of man who didn't like flashy cars or clothes.  He always drove around in a really old car.  He loved swimming.  He would go swimming every morning in Dun Laoghaire and then cycle home.  He was a lovely man and will be sadly missed.
