On 17 January, 2014 our friend, colleague and teacher was taken from us suddenly. As we approach the third anniversary of Olivia’s passing, we remember her in a special way. Olivia was a kind, caring and hardworking teacher. As a friend and colleague, Olivia was extremely generous, thoughtful and considerate. Olivia is sadly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew her. Ní bheidh a leithéid arís ann.
