Reunion of the Class of 1962
On July 5th 2012 eleven of the fourteen survivors of the 1962 Leaving Cert. Class visited their classroom in the original School Building - the Montessori room. Sadly, Gerry Lynch ,RIP, was greatly missed at our get-together.
Three survivors, Sean Hayes (Melbourne), Seamus Blake (London) and Syl.
Bowles (Ontario) were contaced via cell phones from our Classroom. All those
present spoke to each of the 3 amid great delight, laughter and tales . It
was well mentioned that many had no contact with some of the class members
since the class broke up for the final time.
The group photo of the reunion has a front row of positioning
exactly like that of the seven in the 1962 Photo. If the Back row in the
1962 photo were numbered 1 to 8 (from L to R), then those in the back row of
the 2012 Group
would be 3, 5, 7 and 8. On the day, there was one man present from each of Sydney, London and California with the other eight being resident in Ireland. Click on each of the above images to bring up a larger version.
Anna Moore, of that well-known Village Hostelry, prepared and served food-to-remember and we were very comfortable during the hours spent there. Thanks to C. Hayes for the article.
