The launch of ‘A History of St. Fintan’s High School’ written by teacher, Shane Gilleran will take place on Tuesday, the 28th of November in the Elphin Function Room in Baldoyle at 7:30pm. The book has been written by Shane to celebrate 80 Years of St. Fintan’s High School and encapsulates the history of our school and the contributions made to it’s 8o year history by former brothers, principals, deputy principals, teachers, students, boards of management, parents’ associations, past pupils and members of the surrounding community. Decade by decade, Shane brings us down memory lane, describing the ups and downs of school life amid the social changes of the time. He also shares memories of past pupils and teachers which add a colourful and often humorous dimension to the story of our school.
