Mary Moloney (O'Gorman) hails from County Clare and received her early education in Scrapul N.S. She then attended St. Joseph's Secondary School, Spanish Point, Co. Clare. From there she went to Mary Immaculate College of Education, Limerick. Following graduation she taught in the Convent of Mercy Primary School, Cappoquin, Co. Waterford, Coolnasmear N.S. and joined the staff of Edmund Rice Primary School (formerly C.B.S. Tramore) in the early seventies. She became Vice-Principal in 1981.
She has seen many changes in the educational system over her teaching life and loves the challenge of a new set of pupils every September. She is currently coming to grips with Information Technology and is glad of the assistance of other staff members and pupils.
A keen gardener, Mary can often be found in her herbaceous border tending her many shrubs. Now that her family are up and reared she enjoys a peaceful house, a good book and a nice cup of tea (heaven). She is also a keen bridge player and has won a number of prizes at local competitions.
