Head teacher pays tribute to LCpl Foley

The former teacher of Lance Corporal Michael Foley has paid tribute to the solider, who was killed in Afghanistan,

He was a popular, outgoing pupil. He was very sure of himself and knew very early on that he wanted to join the forces.

He was never shy of putting his point of view forward!

I remember as a very popular pupil who represented our school very well.
