A former Donegal school principal who stole more than €240,000 from his school has been removed from the teaching register following a fitness-to-teach inquiry.
Fionbar Ó Baoill (41), with an address at Ballybofey, was the former principal of St Patrick’s National School, Kilnaleck, Co Cavan.
Mr Ó Baoill, also known as Finbar Boyle, has been struck from the register and banned from teaching for a minimum period of 15 years following the Teaching Council’s disciplinary inquiry.
Mr Ó Baoill had pleaded guilty to five counts of theft and two counts of forgery while principal at St Patrick’s, a 70-student primary school in Kilnaleck, Co Cavan between 2007 and 2012.
He was initially handed a suspended two-year sentence, on the condition he repaid €25,000 in March 2018.
