In 2014 The Tribesmen hosted the first provincial dinner to be held in Connacht since 1974, and the event went so well, Jeff Smith, '64, decided to call for a repeat outing in 2015.

Friday 20 March was the chosen date and the Ardilaun Hotel, Taylors Hill, Galway the venue.

20 pastmen answered the call -

Peter M. Allen '73, Gilbert Barrington '80, Eoin P. Bresnihan '60, Paul Callanan '86, Paddy Cooney '48, Mark Cooney '80, Eamonn Faller '69, Tom Grealy Snr. '62, Tom Grealy Jnr. '90, Hugh Hanly '61, Barry Heavey '75, John McDonagh '71, Kieran McHugh '81, Joe McKenna '60, Jonathan Murphy '87, Joe Murphy '64, Stephen O’Neill '71, Martin Rafferty '51, Roy Thompson '60 and John F. (Jeff) Smith '64 as Organiser-in-Chief.

They were joined by Fr. Peter Slevin, C.M., College President and Michael A. Quinn as Guest Speaker.

The evening was a tremendous success, the credit for which is entirely due to Jeff, who worked tirelessly at pulling the event together.
