It is with regret that we report the death of an tUasal Pól Mac Murchú, teaching staff 1953-1996, senior school, vice-principal 1973 – 1996.
“Pól Uasal Mac Murchú brought to a close a 42-year period of teaching in St. Mary’s, with 23 of them carrying out the duties of Vice-Principal in the Senior School. His enthusiasm for the Irish language and his success in teaching it are very well known. His long period of service of the students in St. Mary’s meant that he was, for many past-students, the link between their school days and the present.” St Mary’s College Annual, 1996
