We are deeply saddened by the tragic death of our beloved pupil Dylan Coady Coleman. Dylan’s gorgeous smile and kindness endeared him to all in our school community. He was a very popular member of 4th class and will be greatly missed by everyone here in St. Tola’s.

On behalf of everyone in St. Tola’s we would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Dylan’s parents Laura and Garry, his sister Zoe, his baby brother Shane, his grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and his wide circle of friends here in St. Tolas and in the wider Shannon community.

Our focus here in St Tolas is supporting our pupils now and in the weeks ahead. We have had support from the National Educational Psychological Service who have been available in the school this week to advise staff as they support our pupils. 

We will always treasure the fond memories we have of Dylan and his time in our school.  He will always be a member of our school community.
