It is with profound sadness that the management, staff and pupils of Gallen Community School, Ferbane, learned of the death of one of our students Allan Kelly and past pupil Raymond Mulhall.
Our deepest sympathy is extended to the Kelly and Mulhall families.
Allan was a friendly, outgoing sixth year student who had a good relationship with all of us here in school and is sadly missed by his teachers and friends. Raymond was a very pleasant young man and we were pleased to know that he was happy in his employment in Tullamore.
On hearing the sad news the school critical incident response plan was put into immediate operation. Two NEPS psychologists are assisting school personnel this week and procedures are in place to ensure that all the school community affected by this loss are given all the help they need to cope at this time. The school is offering counselling and support for pupils affected by this tragedy. Pupils will attend and participate in the funeral service, in accordance with the wishes of the family.
Gallen CS will be closed on Wednesday 20th .
Funeral Arrangements for Allan Reposing at his residence today, Monday, from 8.30pm until 10pm, tomorrow Tuesday from 3pm until 9pm. House private on Wednesday. Funeral mass on Wednesday at 2pm in St. Ciaran’s Church, Shannonbridge followed by burial in Clonmacnois.

May they both Rest in Peace
Our prayers and support are with their families at this sad time.
