ST. FINBARR'S COLLEGE AKOKA

Rev Fr. D.J Slattery came to Nigeria in 1939 where he initially served in a parish in the Yoruba inland town in the Western Region. He was later posted to St Gregory’s College Obalende as a teacher and eventually, the games master of the school. He later became the Editor of the Catholic Herald in Mushin. During this period, he thought of establishing a unique school.
