  • Retirement of Frankie Thomas- school caretaker Killeigh NS recently said goodbye to our school caretaker Frankie Thomas who has retired. Frankie was a very popular figure around the school and he will be greatly missed. Frankie carried out many jobs in order to keep the school going but perhaps his most important job (as far as countless boys and girls were concerned ) was retrieving footballs from over the ditch. His easygoing manner and affable charm made him popular with young and old alike and we wish him all the best in his retirement.At our recent sports day, a presentation was made to Frankie on behalf of the staff of the school and the Board of Management.
