Mary Daly – RIP

It is with great sadness that we share the news that our former principal, colleague and dear friend, Mary Daly has passed away. Mary, a native of Upton taught in our school from 1974-2008 and was principal from 1999-2008. Mary was a passionate, kind and gifted teacher who shared her love of music in particular, with pupils and staff. She wrote many a lyric for visiting local teams and greeted all who visited with a genuine smile and warmth.

The children in Scoil Mhaoilíosa were always Mary’s priority and she was and continued to be immensely proud of them all. As principal, she guided Scoil Mhaoilíosa with passion and care and was a constant support to all of her pupils, their parents, staff and the wider school community. Her enthusiasm was infectious and it permeated throughout every aspect of school life. Her vision of a happy school was clearly evident in each and every smile from the youngest pupil to the oldest member of staff.

We, the community of Scoil Mhaoilíosa, are all the better for having known Mary and we feel fortunate to say that she was our true friend. We wish to express our sincere sympathies to her husband Tim, her sons Carroll, Con and Tim Junior, her cherished grandchildren and her extended family.

Táimid croí bhriste agus chomh brónach. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.
