Dominican College Past Pupils

As part of the Dominican College 125 Celebrations the school is trying to reach out and make contact with as many past pupils as possible. On Sunday May 11th 2008 the school hosted a 'Back to School Day' for past pupils from both the Eccles Street and Griffith Avenue traditions. The Eccles Street tradition is well served by the existing Past Pupils Union. Therefore the 125 celebrations are being used as an obvious opportunity to link up again with those who attended the school in Griffith Avenue.

On that day a special Mass took place at 2.00pm in Marino Church with readings, music and singing being provided by past students. After the Mass past pupils were invited back to the school on Griffith Avenue to meet up with old school mates, former teachers and staff. Past students were be able to visit the old and new facilities in the school. Newer developments include the major extension opened in 2003 and the new Home Economics kitchens completed just last summer.

On May 11th we gathered contact details from the past pupils who attended so that better school and past pupil relations can be fostered into the future. In the meantime if you wish to be added to our email list contact us at
This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. In your email let us know the year you graduated so that we can plan for past student events in the future.
We hope to start an on-line newsletter for past pupils in the Autumn. Also if you have any photographs or interesting memorabilia from your school days email us pictures of them for display on this website.

Following on from this day it is the school's intention to foster and develop better relations and communications with its past pupils. Simple ideas like an on-line newsletter updating past pupils on developments and news from the school will be put in place. We also hope to develop the past pupils section of our website. We also hope to provide past pupils with ways to play more active roles in the life of school. Please feel free to email us your ideas too.

We are also in the early stages of planning for a gala event to conclude the 125celebrations - watch this website for more details.

From 1918 until her sudden retirement from the stage of grand opera in 1930, she gave legendary performances in the great opera houses of La Scala, San Carlo, Rome Opera House, Covent Garden and Monte Carlo.The young Irish soprano captured the ears and hearts of Italian and British audiences and the acclaim of such giants of the operatic world as Puccini and Toscanini. Her artistry was complimented by a vibrant personality which gave her performances a unique quality remarked upon by critics and patrons alike. She was a pupil in Dominican College,
