Bicentenary Celebration – details to follow


Past Events:


Thursday 22nd May 2014


Given that May is the traditional month for Union Day, we’re planning another evening of informal drinks for the London alumni on Thursday, May 22nd.


We’ve decided to go ahead with the same pub as the February drinks – The Kings Head in Mayfair (10 Stafford Street, W1S 4RX). There should be a few of us there from 6ish onwards so pop in whenever suits.


There are plans afoot to host something slightly more formal in September to celebrate the bicentenary with some representation from Clongowes joining us on the night. There’s nothing concrete in place so if you have any suggestions, they’d be most appreciated.


The Gollymocky Trophy Golf Event is taking place in Edgebaston Golf Club on Friday, October 3rd. Ross Finnegan is organising the event – he’ll send out a registration e-mail closer to the date.


For those who are fond of advanced planning, the 2015 Union Dinner will be held on Friday, February 27th – that’s the weekend of the Ireland v England 6 Nations match.


Please do forward this on to other OCs who may not have received this e-mail (if you want to CC me in, I can then add their e-mail to the distribution list) Ronan Gallagher –


December 2013

Clongowes Christmas drinks Wednesday 11th December 2013 at The Guinea Grill, 30 Bruton Place, W1J 6NL.

It will be quite informal so no need to arrive at a specific time – there will be a few of us there from 6 onwards. No agenda for the evening as such but it would be good to hear people’s thoughts surrounding events for 2014 and how best to celebrate the bicentenary.

We have OC’s from 1954 all the way to 2007 with good representation from each decade in between so it should be a lively event.
