An enjoyable night was had by all in Grants Hotel by past students recently. Richard Feenery adressed all present, and expressed his delight to meet up again with friends and teachers that were in the Vocational School from 1977- 1982. For some it had been 30 odd years or so since they last met with people travelling from Kerry, Dublin, Westmeath and Kildare. Many Pictures from school activities were on display with copies of the original roll book. In 1977 there were four classes of boys and 2 classes of girls and it was acknowledged by all that these were happy memories. Conference calls were taken on the night from Anthony Mc Namara in London, and Helen Dunne in Glasgow, indeed the only two of the Leaving Certificate Class who are away. Seamus Mullaney spoke on behalf of the staff, and had fond memories of the many academic and social outings that we had.

Thanks to Fr.Tony Cahir, Fr.Tom Hogan, Seamus Dennison,Seamus Mullaney,and Theresa Scully for providing pictorial memories on the night, Colaiste Phobaill for providing School Roll Book and Grants Hotel for lovely meal. Here’s to the next 30 Year Reunion
