Class '76 - 40 Year Reunion Alert

Class '76 - 40 Year Reunion Alert -


The Castleknock year from 1976, whether they like it or not, have now successfully reached the milestone of 40 years since they exited the College way back then.

To mark this anniversary, it is planned to hold a reunion get together on Saturday, May 21st 2016 in the Park Hotel in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. Not only is a gala evening reception and dinner arranged, but for those who might wish to make a day of it with their former classmates from ‘Knock, there will also be a golf outing planned in the local and much acclaimed Mullingar GC.

And for those who wish an even more active pastime, there will be a cycle along the recently opened Mullingar to Athlone Greenway. It remains to be seen if many will opt to go for the full distance of 40km!

The 1976 year was one of the largest years in the history of SVC to that point, with a grand total of 88 young lads, and all but 10 have been tracked down and served with their invitation.  A very creditable 52 have responded positively and hope to make it to Mullingar.

Six sadly have passed on and will be remembered on the evening.

Any and all questions to your lead organisers: Andrew O'Rourke and Pierce Higgins
