Is Mise Le Meas,
Farewell to Mr Mac Donncha
Former and present colleagues gathered at the Osprey Hotel Naas on January 22 to mark the occasion and to celebrate the retirement of Mr Feilim Mac Donncha from his position in Piper’s Hill College. Mr Mac Donncha began his teaching career with Co Kildare Vocational Educational Committee on September 1982 being appointed to their Naas school. Since then he has made a very valuable contribution as an Irish and Geography teacher and also as Director of Adult Education for the school. It is perhaps for his commitment and dedication to the Irish language that Mr Mac Donncha will be most remembered by us here in Piper’s Hill College. He was responsible for organising numerous trips to the Gaeltacht and other extracurricular activities to promote the Irish language among students throughout the years. He took every opportunity to communicate “as Gaeilge” with both his students and colleagues alike whether in the classroom or the staffroom. He is associated with many special moments in the school life for both colleagues and students. His recitation at the school’s annual Christmas Talent Show being one of the most notable. This impromptu delivery was eagerly anticipated by everyone and became one of the highlights of this end of term event. On behalf of the management , staff and students here at Piper’s Hill College we wish to thank Mr Mac Donncha for his service and wish him all the very best for the coming years.
