Geraldine Cronin December 1996


Geraldine Cronin from Carnaun, Athenry, has recently graduated from Letterfrack Furniture College. She is a past pupil of Carnaun National School and Athenry Vocational College. Geraldine always had an interest in carpentry but unfortunately woodwork was not an option for girls when she attended school. That is not the case now.

However, Geraldine persevered and was chosen for Letterfrack College through the work she had done over the years at home. Through her own initiative she has fulfilled her ambition and is now working in England at her chosen career. We can all learn from her example.
