A note from St. Patrick’s Boys’ Secondary School to alert locals that one of its fifth year students found a large sum of money on Main Street here in Castleisland at lunchtime on Tuesday of this week drew a huge reaction from The Maine Valley Post Facebook page.

Praise from all Quarters

The posting of the note drew praise from all quarters for the honesty of the student who found the money. His family and school came in for the same and as examples of all that’s still good in the world today.

All’s well that ends well, however, and the school arranged for that rightful owner, a fellow secondary school pupil from St. Joseph’s Girls’ Secondary School, to be reunited with her cash.

Found and Handed Up

Seán Brosnan from Currow is the name of the honest, young man who found and handed up the sum of money to Principal Denis O’Donovan at St. Patrick’s.

Seán is a son of Tone and Ann Brosnan of Kilsarcan and, as many of the almost 60 comments Tuesday’s post pointed out, he is a credit to his parents, his upbringing, his parish and his school.
