A group of past students came together in the last 18 months to resurrect and reconnect the PPU with Garbally College’s past pupils.
The multi-decade alumni consisting routinely of Martin Nunan Chair, Damian Mac Con Uladh, Paddy Feehily, Declan Kavanagh, Aidan Ryan, Alan Harney, Colm Croffy, Mike Shiel, Declan Kelly, Frank Turley, Declan Geraghty, Timmy Broderick, Michael Mc Cullagh, were aided with online discussions and contributions from a variety of class mates.
They have been working with the college authorities , Principal Paul Walshe and other stakeholders in demising and developing a proposed constitution and method of organisation.
To launch the PPU, an inaugural AGM has been organised, coinciding with the Garbally Golf Classic on Friday 29 April at 8pm in Gullane’s Hotel. The business of the meeting will be to approve a working constitution, elect new officers and to set out a programme of events for the year ahead.
Martin Nunan, Chair of the PPU Working Group stated: “I’d like to thank the group for their patience over the last few months. It has been a tough period, but we are where we wanted to be as a group for past pupils. We can now look forward to the AGM and keep momentum with our plans”
A draft constitution is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Final details for the AGM are being made but it’s hoped to facilitate those not physically present via Zoom Visit - Facebook page Garbally College Past Pupils for further updates and information or contact any of the working group.
