August 11, 2021

The entire Salesian Secondary College community are deeply saddened by the news this morning of the untimely death of Fr. PJ Nyland, SDB. A proud Mayo man, Fr. PJ came to Pallaskenry as a brother in 1979. Having completed his formal studies, he was appointed to the teaching staff in 1986. Fr. PJ served as Principal from 2000-2003. A treasured colleague, keen sportsman and mentor, compassionate listener and beloved teacher, he was a true gentleman and a friend to all. Fr. PJ will be remembered particularly for the wonderful way he had with students. The epitome of loving kindness and gentleness, he was always among the young people. He will be greatly missed by all the Salesian family. The school extends its deepest sympathy to his family and the Salesian religious community. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé go deo.
