  1. Hi All, I have just been talking to Brendan Connolly and he has just finished composing a couple of satirical verses on his memory of 1969, entitled “Wine of 69”, to be read out on the night. I am sure it’s hilarious like much of his other work. Many Thanks Brendan.

  2. Eoin (aka Owen) Keenan

    Hi all, thanks to those who initiated the reunion and for including me (as an interloper from the class of ’68)! I hope to be with you on 10th June. I trained as a social worker in Dublin & Birmingham, working mainly in the voluntary sector and eventually moved into management. I was CEO of Barnardos for fifteen years to 2005 and since then I’ve been running my own nonprofit business consultancy, which I’m now gradually winding down. Apart from a few years in Birmingham in the 1970s, I’ve mainly lived in Dublin but for the past nine years we’ve been enjoying living in Connemara. I’m married to Cecilia (42yrs) and we have a daughter and a son, each of whom has one child and we have great craic with them. I enjoy gardening, some fishing, and following the fortunes of Dundalk and Liverpool. I’m in touch with Don Gribben who visits us each year with his family. Looking forward to seeing everyone in June. Slán go fóill. Eoin
