End of an era!! Everyone at Ballyhaunis Community School would like to wish Paddy Kelly an enjoyable and relaxing retirement. Paddy is synonymous with BCS and was a stalwart of the school having worked here since the doors opened in 1977 until his retirement in August. He previously worked in the Vocational School in the town and in total has given over 40 years service to the schools of Ballyhaunis. Paddy was always a dedicated worker and much loved by students and colleagues alike. He will always be welcome in the school and we hope he comes to visit soon!
