CM condolences to Christian Brothers

The Chief Minister has sent a message of condolence on behalf of Gibraltar to the Brother Provincial of the Christian Brothers and to the family of the Rev Brother William Foley OBE who died last Friday 7 October.

A spokesman highlighted that many generations of Gibraltarians are indebted to Brother Foley for his contribution over the years in different capacities to Education in Gibraltar: as headmaster of the Gibraltar Grammar School in the 50s and as headmaster of Bayside Comprehensive School in its early difficult years in 1974.

Brother Foley was buried yesterday after a funeral mass in St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Crosby, Liverpool. Dr Bernard Linares, Minister for Education represented Gibraltar at the funeral.
