John Thomas McNamara, RIP, was a past pupil of mine and I can honestly say that he was the most devoted young man to horses and racing, even as a teenager. I remember him so well as a very popular and gentle lad at all times. However, in a very real way, school was a torture for him, as when he was in boarding school, he missed his beloved horses so much, it was devastating for him. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
