Jackie McGovern RIP
August 1965 – March 10th, 2020
Today, on her second anniversary, we remember our dear colleague, Jackie McGovern, who
passed away in tragic circumstances. Today, as we finally gather together as a school community,
we will light a candle to represent the light that Jackie brought to our school family, her many
contributions to school life, her quiet kindness to anyone who needed it, and her commitment and
dedication to the pupils in her care, especially in The Meadow.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Brendan, her children Oisin, Cormac, and Clodagh,
her parents Paul and Margo, her sister Christina, her brothers Damien and Frankie, and her many
friends at school and beyond.
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it, and only God can tell us why.
We cannot have the old days back when we were all together,
But secret tears and lovely thoughts will be with us forever.
