Retired members from the Wexford Branch of the Irish National Teachers' Organisation (INTO) were honoured for their years of service in the teaching profession in Wexford town schools and surrounding areas at a function in the Talbot Hotel.

The teachers honoured were Clare Doyle (former principal of Crossabeg NS), Mary Egan Byrne (Bree NS), Mary Culleton (Scoil Mhuire), Brigid Scully (former deputy principal of Scoil Mhuire), Miriam Linihan (Scoil Mhuire), Anne McCarry (Kilrane NS), Pat Hackett (Curracloe NS) and Pauline Duggan (St John of God The Faythe).

The night began on a high note with the attendance of the newly elected President of the INTO John Boyle, who personally thanked all of the eight teachers for their contribution to primary education and for their continued support of the INTO.

Chairperson Claire Byrne was the Master of Ceremony for the night and she thanked Branch Organiser Melissa Sinnott for organising the event with branch secretary Maura Griffin.

Each teacher received a small presentation on behalf of the branch followed by a brief outline of their teaching career by their former principals.
