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.
