Shay Moloney RIP

We learned late yesterday of the death of Shay Moloney & Jack Kenneally. This is a terrible tragedy for both families and friends, our schools and our community. We are deeply saddened by these events.

Our thoughts are with both Shay’s & Jack’s families and friends. Shay was a third year student in St. Flannan’s College while Jack was a second year student in Ennis Community College and both will be greatly missed by all who knew them.

Offers of sympathy have been pouring in and are greatly appreciated. Our school have implemented our critical incident management plan. Psychologists from the National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS) are with us today supporting and advising teachers in their efforts to assist our students at this time. The teachers have been helping students and the school community to deal with the tragic event.

We would ask you to respect our need to support our students privately at this time.  Shay’s and Jack’s families and friends remain in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

Thank you,
Fr. Ignatius McCormack
Principal of St Flannan’s College.
