Fionnbar Walsh visits Scoil Chonglais
December 12, 2016
Scoil Chonglais was delighted to welcome Fionnbar Walsh to the school as part of our Amber Flag Campaign. This Campaign promotes mental health awareness among our student body and our staff. Fionnbar spoke to the students of Scoil Chonglais about his son, Donal who tragically passed from cancer in May 2013. Donal touched many lives, when he came to prominence through his writings and subsequent appearance on Brendan O’Connor’s ‘The Saturday Night Show’. Donal fund raised tirelessly while battling Cancer and his family subsequently set up the Donal Walsh Live Life Foundation to promote Donal's anti-suicide message.
Scoil Chonglais were delighted to welcome Fionnbar to Scoil Chonglais and after the talk, presented Fionnbar with a cheque for the Live Life foundation. The money was raised as a result of a sponsored walk which many students and teachers participated in. We would like to thank Fionnbar for his time and his powerful words which had a huge impact on our students and wish him well in his future endeavors.
