Many thanks to David, Ned, Aidan and Roderick who organised an excellent evening of chat, reminiscence and laughter for students from the classes of LC1979 and LC1980. The evening opened in CBS at 6.30pm on 14th April 2018. After initial greetings, surprise and reintroductions, Fr Roderick Whearty led a thoughtful reflection on the value of friendship, camaraderie and memories and included some past classmates by name - sadly some of whom have died in the intervening years.
Former longstanding Chairman of the Board of Management, Matt Breen, warmly welcomed the gathered men and brought them up to date with the latest developments for CBS Kilkenny and the relocation to a green field site.
This was followed by a tour of the school and many funny stories of their history therein. The Halpin brothers' father had donated the periodic table poster to one of the science labs through his job at the Smithwicks brewery. Since then, seven new elements have been recorded!
After old photos were inspected and analysed, the attendees retired to Langton's to continue their night.
Again, sincere thanks to David, Ned, Aidan and Roderick for bringing these former students together once again.
