The memory of the Rev. Denis Joseph Slattery is celebrated in this third book chronicling the history and achievements of Saint Finbarr’s College, Akoka, Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria.
Written by an alumnus of the college, the series examines the continuing efforts of Saint Finbarr’s College Old Boys Association to enliven the story of the institution and includes stories from numerous alumni who recall Father Slattery with fondness.
The Rev. Slattery, an Irish priest, member of the Society of African Missions (a Roman Catholic missionary organization), and founder of the college, touched the lives of many students who have gone on to make significant personal and professional contributions to the world.

While the Rev. Slattery died in 2003, his legacy can be seen throughout Nigeria and beyond. You’ll be inspired by how one person’s commitment can lead so many others to success when you read The Story of Saint Finbarr’s College.
