Happy Retirement, Frank & Wallace

Pictured are students of St Killian’s along with their vice-Principal Mr Pádraig McIlwaine making presentations to retiring Translink bus drivers Frank Ward and Wallace McCurdy

Frank (receiving his gift from Shea McDonnell) has completed 33 years of service on the school run, while Wallace (receiving his gift from Ursula Gettins) first delivered and collected students to the Garron Tower campus in January 1977.

The gifts were carved from a branch that fell from the eucalyptus tree in the school grounds. Our eucalyptus tree is believed to be the oldest of its kind in Ireland.
