Amanda previously taught at Ballyclare High before taking up a post at Enniskillen Royal Grammar School.

The teacher, aged in her 30s, of Derryree Wood, Lisnaskea, Co Fermanagh passed away suddenly in hospital.

She was the beloved wife of Frainc and devoted mother to Katie and Charlotte. Loving daughter of Kenneth and Linda and much loved sister of Wendy and Susan.

Paying tribute, a spokesperson for the Rashee Road school said: “Amanda taught ICT here in school and was a vibrant, committed member of staff, loved by all and who cared deeply for her pupils.

“She was also involved in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and volunteered to better the lives of all the young people she was involved with and was a great friend to staff here.

“She left us to marry the love of her life, which meant moving back to Enniskillen and taking a teaching post at Enniskillen Royal Grammar School. Our thoughts are with her loved ones at this time.”
