John O' Leary

John O'Leary is most famous as the last man to captain Dublin footballers to All Ireland Glory in 1995. That day he helped the Dub's to overcome the challenge of Tyron by one point- this despite the fact that Dublin were reduced to 14 men for the latter part of the match.



Patrick Mc Mahon

Patrick R. McMahon is a past pupil of ours. He received his legal education at Santa Clara University, School of Law. He has practiced personal injury law in San Jose since 1969. For years he has served as a Judge Pro Tempore for the Santa Clara Superior Court. He has tried jury cases in all Bay Area Counties and has lectured on Personal Injury law and practice by invitation on many occasions. He currently serves as a Member of the Board at Santa Clara University School of Law. In addition to his law career, Mr. McMahon has been an active member and leader of the Irish Community and a booster of the Centre for Literary Arts at San Jose State University.

"Patsy" as he is known to us has been very generous in his donations to the school over the years. In fact the first Multimedia computer purchased by the school was purchased with funds kindly donated by Patsy. With further donations from Patsy and grants from the state and fundraising from the parents committee we know have 15 multimedia computers at least one in every classroom.
