There was joy in Newry this morning as a 56 year-old man has finally passed his A-Levels after resitting the exam in St. Joseph’s School for the past 37 years.
The man’s family have already taken to Facebook to express their ‘pride’ and ‘joy’ of the man’s amazing achievement.
We spoke with the delighted new graduate who told us:
“I knew I had it in me. OK, it took me 37 years to get there and OK, I got a D. But, I mean, this is the biggest thing that has happened in the intellectual circles of Newry since John Mitchell was born.”
