Margaret Mone Sept 10

The school received a donation to school funds of £250.00 from the family of the late Margaret Mone RIP Mullyard.  The money was raised by the Nursing Staff on the Ward where Margaret worked at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.  The family felt that Margaret would have liked the school to benefit from the donation, for even though she had lived in Birmingham for many years her heart was always in Derrynoose.
