THE death of Patricia McTigue (née Flannery), Liosamble, Ballindine.

The deceased was principal of Balla Secondary School.

Patricia joined the teaching staff of the school in 2001. In more recent years she filled the role of deputy principal and was appointed principal in 2015.

A tribute to her on the Balla community website stated: “Patricia was renowned for her energy, endeavour and vision. Both as teacher and principal, she was highly respected and showed great commitment to the development of the school.

“She always took a very keen interest in the well-being of all students. Developing links with the local community was central to her vision.

“She was a great advocate of the Catholic ethos and was instrumental in the development of the school choir which enhanced various liturgies in the parish.”

Deepest sympathy is extended to her husband Brían, children Brían Óg, Fionn, Ódhran and Iarlaith, her parents, sisters Annette, Mary and Carmel, brothers Michael, Pádraig and Liam, parents-in-law, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives, friends and colleagues.
