In Pictures: Knockbeg College relaunch Past Pupils Union

Knockbeg Past Pupils

A great crowd turned out at the Seven Oaks Hotel at the weekend for the relaunch of the Knockbeg College Past Pupils Union.

Former students turned out for a Retirement Night in honour of Johnny Behan.

A presentation was made to John on behalf of the Past Pupils Union for his years of great service as a teacher in Knockbeg since 1985 and his wonderful dedication to the Past Pupils Union.

Finger food was provided and there were many notable faces among the attendees.

Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan was there while so too was Laois’ Leinster winning forward Beano McDonald.

There are more events planned. On Saturday, May 5, the Knockbeg College Golf Classic will take place in Carlow Golf Club with slots still available for remaining teams at a cost of 200 Euro for a team of 4.

Then, on Friday May 25, the Past Pupils Union AGM will take place in the school at 8pm.

It will be the first in a while so hoping for a good response as we try and reactivate the PPU.

Proceedings will start with a Mass in the College Chapel (one of the final Masses in it before its renovation during the school rebuild) at 8pm.

For further details on any of these events, contact Chris Conway at 0879162010.

Our photographer went along at the weekend and here is a selection of the pictures from the night.
