I am a Senior Program Manager which includes working on products such as Messenger, Hotmail and Mobile .
I get to travel with my job which can be fun going to places like Seattle , Slovakia & Europe . Mom, Ursula Beirne, worked there in the canteen for many years – boiled fruit cake, yummy salad sandwiches, etc. Well, she left when pregnant — my sister Louise is now 16 going on 17. Lucky to have 3 healthy and happy children: Lauren 13, Max 7 and Alex 5. Went into Dublin and did a full-time business course for a couple of months, then went to FAS in Loughlinstown and did the Desktop Publishing course (in the days when that technology was all brand new).
I see from both lists that many of our friends have passed away. I left in 1971 after the Inter Cert as we called it then.
I have been working for the last few years with a major insurance company on the claims front.
It is great to see the names and emails from so many.
Still remember Ken Rush on the motor bike smoking the John Players Black!!!!
I’m missing home a bit but it’s really great up here. For my own part, I spent 25 years in the Irish Air Corps both on flying and Admin duties; spent a number of years in the Middle East with the UN. ), three marvelous children and we are living in Lucan.
Regards to all and to Alan Aston (we had great fun during and after college) Please let me know if any event is coming up.
I would love to attend and meet as many as possible. ’05] It was a real pleasure to come across this site, to see all the names really evoked a lot of memories (and quite an amount of sentimentality).
This 4 month course started straight after the Leaving in July.
After this I went to stay with my sister Lorraine in Germany to help with her kids and do some nanny work – I stayed in Germany for 4 months.
