A special ‘Buddy Bench’ has been placed in the playground of St. Paul’s Primary School, Irvinestown in memory of a much-loved member of staff who passed away last year.

A representative of St. Paul’s PS said: “On May 25 last year, St. Paul’s P.S lost a very valuable member of our school staff. Rose Turner had been a Lunchtime Supervisor in the school for many years.

“On her first anniversary Father Kevin blessed a ‘Buddy Bench’ that is in the playground in memory of Rose,” the representative said.
