Great turnout after 20 years

THE RE-UNION of the Colaiste Bride (Enniscorthy) class of 1992 caused quite a stir at D Bar in Templeshannon with more than 60 former pupils sitting down to dinner together.
Organisers Fiona Howe and Joan Doyle were delighted by the turnout in response to their invitation after they tracked down most of the 100 plus former classmates.
They discovered that some students who left the Mercy 20 years ago have gone on to make their homes as far away as Australia and Japan. While the far flung girls were not in town at the weekend, the gathering proved a good excuse for Yvonne Murphy, Michelle O'Gorman and Gayle Fortune to make their way back to Enniscorthy from the UK, while others made the trip from as far away as Louth or Dublin.
The chat over the meal was of the days when Sister Ella McGuinness was school principal and D Bar was a humble hardware shop.
