The staff, pupils and school community of St. Joseph’s are saddened by the untimely and sudden passing of our pupil and dear friend, Joshua Reilly.
As a highly regarded member of Ms. Hassett’s Junior Infant class, Joshua was held in high esteem and was greatly endeared by his teachers, class mates, the wider school staff and school community. No relationship however, could match that of Joshua and his great friend, Trena. The bond between Joshua and Trena was plain for all to see but was quite evident through the warm greeting they both had for each other on the yard each and every morning.
A fanatic football supporter, Joshua regularly took the opportunity to showcase his colours and was often seen wearing the red and white of his beloved Liverpool.
Regardless of class level or age, everybody knew Joshua but Joshua made it his business to know everybody too! A friendly, sociable, outgoing boy, Joshua was known to stop and spark a conversation with anybody in the corridor! He often had to be coaxed back into the classroom as he would have stayed chatting all day!!!
We will miss his friendliness, his warmth, his mischievous nature and his laughter but his spirit will never leave the corridors of St. Joseph’s.
We extend our heartfelt and deepest sympathies to his parents Jennifer & Lorcan, his baby brother, Shane, of whom he was so proud, his grandparents, Ellen, Joe & Declan and to his extended family and many many friends.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam óg.
Joshua, you’ll never walk alone.
