Slán go Fóill Eamon!

Today is a sad day in Scoil Thomáis as we wish our dear caretaker Eamon Dunning a very happy and healthy retirement. Eamon has been an integral part of Scoil Thomáis life over the last 10 years – greeting teachers and pupils early in the morning, maintaining the school grounds and helping out wherever and whenever he was needed. Nothing was too much for Eamon – no matter the job, Eamon was always on hand with a smile on his face. We will really miss him here in the school. His unwavering loyalty to the teachers, kindness to the pupils and service to the school were outstanding! Eamon treated every single pupil like one of his own grandchildren – he had lots of ‘buddies’ here in Scoil Thomáis. The pupils absolutely loved Eamon and we will always remember his warmth, kind-heartedness and generosity of spirit to the pupils in the school especially.

We’ll say slán go fóill to Eamon – goodbye for now – but there is always a place for him here in the school! Enjoy every minute of your retirement Eamon but don’t be stranger!

with love and gratitude from the staff of Scoil Thomáis

Eamon is pictured above with Fr Brendan, receiving a presentation from the Board of Management of Scoil Thomáis at the Christmas Carol Service on Thursday, 19th of December 2019
