Comhbhrón ó chroí libh go léir ar bhás Mhaitiù.Is trua liom bhur mbris. Fear uasal ab ea é agus cigire scoile stuama ciallmhar fosta.Go gcoinneoidh Dia i mboise a láimhe é go brách. Suaimhneas síoraí dá anam uasal.

He was my school inspector when I first started teaching in 1970. He was a gentleman. Sincere sympathies to his family.
