The Class of '86 Reunion

Well, though the Diary didn’t get down to O’Connell’s for the latter part of last evening's CPC Class of ’86 Reunion, there was a lot of fun and remembering going on while they were back in the College beforehand, writes Brian Byrne.

After some socialising and then touring the school to bring back some more memories, the 37 or so former pupils then assembled in the school’s Sacred Space — a recent innovation which wasn’t there in their time — for some quiet reflection.

We’ll detail more later on the Diary, but here are pictures, and there’s an interesting piece on the event in next Tuesday’s Kildare Nationalist.
