A much loved school principal got a great send off last week ahead of beginning a new role with the National Council for Special Education.

FAREWELL: Paul Favier pictured with the school's Board of Management on his last day as principal of Glenflesk National School.

Staff, pupils, the Board of Management, parents, family members and Fr Nicholas Flynn gathered in Glenflesk National School to say a final farewell to Paul Favier who has been with the school for 11 years.

A number of presentations and speeches were made followed by tea and cake.

"Paul is moving on to a new job as a Special Educational Needs Organiser 'SENO'," Michael McGillicuddy, a member of the Board of Management told the Killarney Advertiser.

"We had speeches, the Board of Management made a presentation, the staff also made a presentation and the children presented him with a scrapbook that they had made. We had invited Paul's parents Dan and Marian, his sister Danielle and his brother Ollie whose children attend the school."

There was also a night out in Spillane's in Barraduff that weekend, he added.

Michael added that Paul worked very hard in the school over the years.

"He did more than what the job entailed, he put in a lot of work behind the scenes. He was the chairperson of Erasmus and organised all the trips away and generated a lot of money that way. He'll be greatly missed."

Next week the school will welcome Michael O'Sullivan from Kilcummin who will take up the role of principal.
