Online book of Condolence

Edel was a unique and special person, a wonderful teacher and a sincere and
faithful friend. Our hearts are broken as a school community at the loss of
someone who gave so much to so many in her 16 years with us.
To her husband Eoghan, her children Erin, Aoibhinn, Oisin and Dàire, her
parents Paddy and Betty, her sister Natasha and her entire family and wide
circle of friends, we offer our sincere and heartfelt sympathy.

‘Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Love leaves a memory no one can steal.’
