A Mass in memory of Fr. Kevin McKenna will be held in the Carndonagh Community School Áras on the evening of Tuesday, June 3, at 7pm.
County Derry born Fr. McKenna was the principal of Carndonagh Community School from 1973 to 1991 and worked tirelessly to ensure the children of Inishowen had access to the best possible facilities.
He was visionary in his introduction of computers into education and committed to the promotion of the Irish language.
The community school ethos was close to his heart with the assurance of access for all children to education regardless of colour, creed, social or economic background
The service, which will be celebrated by Fr. Andy Dolan, is open to all and especially former pupils from Fr. McKenna’s era are very welcome.
