Feargal Quinn Our Dear Friend
It is with great sadness that we learned today of the passing of our dear friend, Senator Feargal Quinn. He was a huge supporter of the work of the Leaving Certificate Applied National Association for many years. Each year he financially supported our national ‘Feargal Quinn Awards’, presented to the students who achieved the highest number of credits. He was appointed Chairperson of the Steering Committee for the Leaving Certificate Applied,in 1993, He described this appointment ‘as one of the more interesting and rewarding challenges that I have undertaken’. He believed ‘that the introduction of the Leaving Certificate Applied was the most important development in the educational system in recent years’. He valued the fact that the Leaving Certificate Applied offered students a choice, that takes into account the generally accepted fact that different people have different kinds of strengths, and that we should build for their future on those intelligences, rather than on exposing and punishing weaknesses. He remained a keen ambassador of the programme, attending our awards ceremony and annual conference. We will miss his friendship, encouragement and positive support.assistance.
