Boston College arrives in Dublin for 150th celebrations
ORIGINALLY founded to educate the sons of Irish emigrants, Boston College has maintained its strong links to this country for 150 years.
Today alumni and present day students were in Dublin for the latest leg of the College’s Sesquicentennial celebrations.
In partnership with Catholic Relief Services and Stop Hunger Now, the college is visting seven cities, six in the US as well as Dublin.
The Helping Hands service project has a combined goal of sending 150,000 meals to hungry families and has already far exceeded that ambitious target.
Students, alumni, parents, and friends of the University gathered at the Conrad Hotel in Earlsfort Terrace for the event.
