THE Coláiste Bríde class of 1987 well and truly turned back the clock at The Rugby Club re­cently as they at­tended a spe­cial re­union to cel­e­brate 30 years since they fin­ished school and en­tered the big bad world. A to­tal of 58 ladies from the class were in at­ten­dance on the night, some of whom trav­elled long dis­tances to be there com­ing from Aus­tria, Wales and all over Ire­land.

While the group gath­ered to­gether to cel­e­brate 20 years pre­vi­ously, a lot of work was put in to make sure that it was a great evening as they marked 30 years. The com­mit­tee com­prised of Brídín Cody, Suzanne Walsh, Jean Ken­drick, Chris McGrath and Sue Ka­vanagh, were de­lighted with the at­ten­dance and en­thu­si­asm from their for­mer class­mates and there was great fun as ev­ery­one caught up in the rugby club on the night.

‘It was a great night,’ said Sue. ‘A lot of the group are lo­cal but you don’t nec­es­sar­ily bump into each other a whole lot, so it was lovely to get to­gether and catch up. We had great fun. Liam Sharkey was the DJ and he had us up do­ing all kinds of stuff, like ‘Rock the Boat’. I can tell you, we’re not as ag­ile as we used to be! Some­where Over the Rain­bow was also played, which we per­formed in our school play in sec­ond year. Liz Whe­lan was Dorothy and she sang sur­rounded by the rest of us. It was great fun and a lovely buzz from start to fin­ish.’

It was only a mat­ter of time be­fore the old photos came out and in the end it was de­cided that the ladies were like fine wines and had im­proved with age. As well as hav­ing a great night, the ladies also did their bit for char­ity and a to­tal of €510 raised from tick­ets will no go to The Hope Cancer Sup­port Cen­tre.
