Coláiste Eoin celebrated 75 years (1937-2012) of providing second level education to Hacketstown and the community of east Carlow and west Wicklow at a special celebratory occasion held on 20 December. To mark the 75th milestone, we produced a commemorative booklet which was launched by Ms. Mary O’ Rourke. This commemorative booklet included memories from past and present staff together with reflective pieces from past and present students.
This was a great opportunity for all associated with the school history to come together. We were very proud to have former principal’s Mr. Larry Kavanagh and Mr. Michael Daly and members of the Parents Association and Board of Management, Mr. Jim Shannon and Ms. Jenny O’ Regan-Byrne, speak on the day. In attendance also were members of the school community past and present, and members of the VEC including former CEO John O’Keefe.
