Kilskyre National school has grown significantly over the past nine years. In June 2015 the extension of the 6th classroom was completed.
Fr John Brogan RIP was chairperson of the Board of Management of Kilskyre NS from 2009-2015. Fr Brogan was very involved in school life and had a part to play in the initial planning stages of the extension.
The Board of Management felt it was only fitting that the new extension would be dedicated to the memory of Fr Brogan. Bishop Smith blessed the new building on Friday 28 October 2016 and unveiled a plaque dedicating the building to the memory of Fr Brogan.
Some members of the Brogan family were in attendance for the ceremony. Fr Brogan is greatly missed by everybody in Kilskyre National school but his memory will live on.
