PURCHASE OUR BOOK
NEVER A DULL DAY – SYNGE STREET 1864 TO 2014
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
A new school year is about to commence at Synge Street we say farewell to the class of 2017 who achieve excellent results in this year’s Leaving Certificate and wishing them the very best with their next journey that is about to begin and to Derek Lynch who has left the post of deputy principal to take up the principal post in New Cross College in Finglas.
I would like to wish Derek every success in his new role and I have no doubt he will bring the same energy and enthusiasm to his new position as he brought to Synge Street.
We welcome the new students about to start in First Year and I hope they have many happy and memorable moments in their year in Synge Street.
The PPU would like to congratulate Lesley Plunkett on her appointment as deputy principal. I would like to wish Clare and Lesley and staff best wishes for this coming school year.
