Mr. Ken Blackmore

 

It is with great sadness that we heard of the sad passing of Mr Ken Blackmore, Headmaster of Sligo Grammar School from 1966 to 1977. During his time as Headmaster Mr. Blackmore was responsible for a significant building project including the development of the old teaching block and the installation of the original gravel hockey pitch. Mr Blackmore is fondly remembered by many past pupils and by the staff who worked with him.

A Funeral Service will take place on Friday (19th November) at 10.30am in Taney Parish Church, Taney Road, Dundrum, Dublin, followed by a committal at 12.15pm at Mount Jerome Crematorium, Harolds Cross.

May he rest in peace.
