He was the principal of St Mary’s Primary School in Maghera.
His local GAA club Watty Graham#s Glen paid its own tribute to Mr Lagan.

“We as a club and community will stand strong with the Lagan family in the days, weeks and months ahead.”
“Rest in peace Francis. 💔”
St Mary’s also paid its own tribute to Mr Lagan.
In a message from the vice principal Martina Bradley, the school said: “The entire College family is shocked to hear of the sad passing of Francis Lagan, brother of our Head of Mathematics Mrs M. Devlin.
“Francis was a valued past pupil and Principal of our feeder Primary St. Mary’s, Glenview.
“He is pictured as part of the 1996 Forrester’s Cup winning team.

“Education in South Derry has lost a giant in his prime.
“Condolences to his wife Louise, Mrs M. Devlin and the entire Lagan family.
“St Patrick, pray for him.”Tags:
