My deepest sympathies to the Walsh family. Ms Walsh was an extremely kind and thoughtful person, always looking out for students who needed extra help and doing beyond what was asked from a teacher. Her office was a safe environment for many students at St.Als. May she rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to the entire Walsh family. Ms Walsh was a true angel, always around if you ever needed someone to "hold your heart" as she called it and what a powerful, moving feeling that was. "A good teacher is like a candle they consume themselves to light the way for others" Siobhan lit the path for so many St Als students included myself. The guidance, help, support and love she had for her students was unmatched. Her door was always open wether it was to just sit there and listen, give me advice, help me with any subject I was struggling with or even for a chat. I'm so grateful to have known Ms Walsh and will carry her with me always xx

My deepest sympathy to the Walsh Family. I can't imagine the pain. I do know Siobhan is a true angel in peace now protecting you all.
My fondest memory of Siobhan is celebrating our birthdays together at times in elementary school, since it was the same day and our moms were friends. This was a special time! I'll never forget how incredibly smart, gifted, and kind you were. Im not surprised you touched so many people from all over in your life.
My God Bless the Walsh Family in this healing time.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

Sincere condolences to all of Siobhán's family and friends at this difficult time. I was honoured to call Siobhán my friend and privileged to be her colleague. A wonderful teacher and the wisest, kindest and most insightful human that I have ever met. We all believed that she would be part of our lives forever. This was not to be. The memories of the fun and great times we had over the years with this mighty woman, in the corridors and classrooms of St Als' and on the buses, tours and nights out, where no topic was ever off limits; these will sustain us. You have left your mark Siobhán, in our hearts and minds. We will continue to love you. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.
