SEO's. Thank you
I knew a John Curley who went to St Malachy.s college and then joined the civil service. 
Sorry to hear about your brother meeting a terrible violent end to his life
God bless[size=78%]
[/font][/size]Sj, what is wrong with the name 'Blessed Trinity College' ???
Also, why did you laugh about it, in your previous post?
Thankyou, in advance of your response.
I wait with anticipation   
I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...

The original name change was to I believe "Trinity College". It came as a surprise to find it was called Blessed Trinity . Seems a strange name for a school . I always add either a smiley face or another symbol at the end of a post 😎

Its a Catholic School. Trinity in connection with the blessed trinity. The father, the son and the Holy Ghost.
Blessed indeed.
It was always to be called 'Blessed Trinity', as used in our Catholic faith.
How do you find the name strange then, given the terms significance in Our Catholic faith??
Do you not like the term??
Are you upset at the school, being proud of its Catholic ethos and tradition??
