25 Oct

It was with great sadness that we concluded our Halloween events with a presentation to Mrs.Eileen Vesey who yesterday retired from her duties as traffic warden. The many parents/past pupils and pupils who were present is testament to the high regard in which Eileen is/was always held.
Eileen has been central to school life here in St. Attracta’s since 1981 and a wonderful asset to this school community. Eileen has made a great contribution to ensuring our children’s safety, looking after each of our pupils with great care and attention.

Presentations and glowing tributes were extended to Eileen from Noel Gibbons (Road Safety Officer Mayo County Council), John Casey/Mary Meehan (Representatives of our parent body), Fr.Thomas Johnston (Chairperson of the Board of Management) and the School Principal. Each speaker complimented Eileen on her dedication, kindness and her interest in and care for every child. Many examples were given of occasions where Eileen went above and beyond the call of duty.

We would like to wish Eileen health and happiness to enjoy her well deserved retirement and pay tribute again to the remarkable commitment she has shown to this school.
