The book is finally out and available. It was launched at a special reception in the Mansion House, Dublin, hosted by the Lord Mayor, Christy Burke, and officially launched by Gay Byrne, himself a Past Pupil from 1952.

The book, edited by school principal Michael Minnock and past pupil and sports journalist Sean Ryan. It has taken most of the year to research and compile, and is a fantastic document of over 260 pages. It has taken much longer than expected but the end product is superb, and was worth the extra time and effort which it took to get the whole project together.

There are two versions of the book available – a Limited Edition Hard Back for €50 or a soft back copy for €15, both of which can be purchased, in person, directly from the school, during business hours, Monday to Friday, or call them on 01 478 3998, or online by clicking on buttons below.

Dear Fellow Past Pupils

Always at this time of the year I recall my head being stuck in the books studying for the summer school exams but having an eye on all the free time that the summer holidays away from school brought. Those were the days.

For some reason the weather was always good when exam time was approaching and I doubt this year will be no different for the current Synge Street students.

I would like to wish students doing their Junior and Leaving Certificate examinations starting in June all the very best with their studies and good luck in their exams.

For the 6th year students they are leaving Synge Street, as we did many years ago, looking forward to the next exciting journey of their lives whatever it brings. I wish them well on their journey.

The Annual Dinner was held on Saturday 8th of April where over 150 Past Pupils attended the dinner. A good evening was had and the old stories of Synger were discussed over many a pint or two on the night.

I have my President’s Prize in the Grange Golf Club on Thursday 20th of April the golf course was in excellent condition and the weather was nice to us. Congratulations to Niall Barry with a winning score of 38 points to capture my prize. I would like to thank Tom Scully for organising a great day and hats off to the Grange Golf Club for an excellent meal after the golf.

Our next golf outing is on the Thursday 7thof September in Edmondstown Golf Club for Ray Martin’s Captain Day. The cost is €65 to include meal. I look forward to see you all on the day.

I wonder will Jim McNelis (1981) be able to retain the Captain’s Cup this year.

Summer time is here with the long evenings and hopefully good weather.

Hope you all have a wonderful summer


Till the next time
