Past Pupils Dinner Photos and Report
The Annual Past Pupils Dinner was held recently in the Strand Hotel Limerick. A great evening was enjoyed by all those attending and in particular the Class of 1969 who were there to celebrate their 50 year reunion. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Roll of Honour award to our first female recipient, Dr. Caitríona Jackman from the Class of 1999.
We'd like to thank all those who supported the event especially those who attended and made it a great evening. We are looking forward to 202 already.

Class of 79 Reunion
Just a week ago on Saturday 23rd November, the Greenhills Hotel in Limerick was the venue for the Class of 1979 to celebrate 40 years since they graduated from Crescent. There were almost 50 of the class in attendance and a number of Crescent staff who were teachers in the 1970s were also the guests on the night. Those attending travelled from near and far .. and many combined the reunion with a visit to Thomond Park for a Munster game before attending the dinner. Our photographer Michel King was on hand to capture a few photos and particularly the full group photo which we've shared on our website .. click here to see more
