Dear Madam, - Thank you so much for your coverage of President Michael D. Higgins’ and Sabina’s visit to Erne Integrated College. We were honoured to be visited by the President and Sabina and delighted to hear the President’s strong speech in favour of peace, reconciliation and integrated education.

My husband, John Brennan (the President’s cousin), taught at the school for 18 years before his untimely death. All four of our children have been educated at the Integrated College and have benefited from a co-educational, inclusive system of education. We hope that the school, which is now in its 21st year, will go from strength to strength, building peace for generations to come.

Yours faithfully, Colleen Brennan.
