Áine Colbert R.I.P.

Posted by James Mernin.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Áine Cholbéir, Naíonra Philib Barún. Áine passed away after a short illness last Friday, 12 October 2018. May she rest in peace.

Áine spent over thirty years working in Naíonra Philib Barún, a cherished colleague and an able Irish speaker who shared her love of the language with generations of children attending the Gaelscoil. We offer our deepest sympathies to her husband Rue and family.

Funeral details are available on RIP.ie.
