It is with great sadness that I wish to inform you of the death of Brother Pat O’Neill RIP.
Brother Pat was a valued member of our staff for 11 years. During those years he volunteered his expertise, care and knowledge free of charge. His approach embodied "Uile le Chèile "and his contribution has left a lasting legacy to Scoil na Naomh Uilig.
