Sad News of the Passing of Pat Herr

We recently featured a photo from 1980 (reproduced below) of lecturer Pat Herr with his class of first year Construction Studies students and it is with sadness we report his recent death.

Pat was a hugely popular figure with both students and staff. One former student who studied under Pat recalled how he was known to have travelled around building sites in the early days of Dundalk RTC trying to recruit young people to come on to the excellent courses on offer, and many did.

Pat had originally attended Bolton Street College of Technology where he studied woodwork. Prior to teaching at Dundalk RTC from 1971, he taught at Monaghan VEC. Pat was very active in the Credit Union movement in Co. Monaghan and also in Blackrock Credit Union when he moved to Co. Louth. He was a keen cyclist and golfer.

To his wife Rosetta, sons Ollan, Ciaran, Padraig, Neal and Ultan, daughters Sally-Ann and Rosetta, brother Conall, sisters Eileen, Maureen and Emer, extended family and friends we offer our deepest sympathies. May he rest in peace.
