I live in Kilcoole with my husband Paul and have three beautiful children.. I also run a very successful company with my husband.
I would love to hear from everyone in my year…I think!!! ’05] Frank was a boy we all loved and knew, With his friendly way and smile it was impossible not to. He had a special eagerness for life and love and fun.
If someone needed help he would always do the best he could To see that they would be ok. We all loved to have him near, We could trust him and tell him things without fear; For Frank was Ciaran Bollard ’98: Hello.
Just been looking up past pupils and its brought back all the laughs I had at school.
Met another wonderful man, Andreas, in MS and we got married last year but not before having 2 children together, Max and Alex. But with both of us working in MS, we both couldn’t keep up the travel and the exhausting work hours so when I had Max, I went back after maternity leave but had to call it a day.
It was a choice between my kids or work and my kids won and I was in a wonderful position that I could retire!
I was then told about a job opening in Microsoft and even though I wanted to stay in Germany for a bit longer, I came back to Ireland and went for an interview with Microsoft.
’05] Debbie (Beirne) Mc Kenna ’84: Really great to see the website up and running and keeping everyone up-to-date. Was actually shocked though to see so may RIP’s, some from my own year. Started work for Microsoft in ’89 as an editor for their manuals.
I see from both lists that many of our friends have passed away. I left in 1971 after the Inter Cert as we called it then.
I have been working for the last few years with a major insurance company on the claims front.
[May 08] Grace Arrigan ’95: I’m just writing to let you all know that I’m living in Sligo now going to Sligo IT doing Interior Architecture and loving it. It is amazing how seeing a list of names can bring back a flood of memories one thought had been gone for years.
I’m missing home a bit but it’s really great up here. For my own part, I spent 25 years in the Irish Air Corps both on flying and Admin duties; spent a number of years in the Middle East with the UN. ), three marvelous children and we are living in Lucan.
