In 2006 Mairéad became the Principal of Carrig N.S. She was a Príomhoide with a strong presence and a heart that embraced her staff, pupils and parents. She cared deeply about everyone and worked tirelessly to make our school a welcoming and inclusive place for all. Mairéad was a passionate leader, in the classroom, in the staffroom and on the pitch. She completed her duties with integrity and boundless energy.  She worked tirelessly for children with special needs, she embraced technology and welcomed new methods of teaching with fervour, bhí grá ar leith aici don Ghaeilge & bhain sí úsáid as go laethúil.

Mairéad played a unique and special role in all our lives in Carrig N.S. It was a privilege to work with such an exceptional lady. We miss her presence in our school, her warmth, her sense of humour, her vitality, her motivation, her friendship and most of all her beautiful smile.

A Mhairéad, a chroí, ní bheidh do leithéid ann arís ach mairfidh do spiorad inár gcroí agus inár gcuimhne. Suaimhneas síoraí dod’ anam álainn uasal.
