John Lonergan Visits Kinsale Community School
Posted by Kinsale Advertiser on 31 January 2017


We were delighted to welcome Mr Lonergan to speak with our TY students on Thursday 26th January last and are very grateful for the opportunity which was facilitated by members of Kinsale Youth Support Services, Mr Tom Walsh and Mr Ger Rice. Mr Lonergan spoke to students about a variety of subjects including the scourge of drugs in society, the reality of prison and how a moment of madness can destroy people's lives.  Mr Lonergan highlighted to students the importance of making informed choices.  Students were truly uplifted and inspired by Mr Lonergan's speech and a great deal of interesting questions followed!
