2014 Annual Dinner
October 3, 2014, 7:30pm
Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club
Dear Past Pupil The annual Wesley College Past Pupils’ dinner will be held on Friday 3rd October 2014, at the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club, Appian Way, Dublin 4. The dinner is a most enjoyable event with past pupils & friends of the College meeting on an annual basis to chat, reminisce, be entertained, and of course, to have a good evening out. We meet for drinks in the members’ bar at 7.30pm and dinner is served shortly after 8.00pm. We are delighted to announce that this year’s guest speaker will be Reverend Heather Morris. She is a past pupil, and as President of the Methodist church in 2013/14 was the first woman elected to lead one of the four major churches in Ireland. The Principal, Chris Woods, will also update us on progress in the school. I am sure both speeches will be up to the usual entertaining and high standard. The cost for dinner and entertainment will be €55 per person. As usual, dress code is informal (jacket and tie) and partners and guests are very welcome. Perhaps you have never attended the Past Pupils Union dinner? If not, then why not make this your first! Organise a class table (or two or three!) by simply joining & sharing this Facebook event. If you wish to attend (and we hope you do), please visit our website, www.wesleyppu.com, for more information and booking form. I look forward to meeting you there, Niall Sisson President Class of 1991

Congrats to the Wesley PPU golf team who won the ASU golf cup this year beating 9 other schools in the process. The Team consisted of Melanie Lawlor, Joyce Chambers, Christine Richardson, Ronnie Ellis, Alex Burns, Alan Rufli, Dennis Lumley, David Holmes, Gedinka Fair, Rodney Evans, Deirdre Chadwick and Andrew Stroughair.
The top 4 scores on the day counted for the overall Prize and Melanie, Joyce, Christine and Ronnie did us proud with their cards and won the team prize.
In addition Melanie won the ladies prize and won the Wendy Porter cup. Ronnie came first in class 3 and Alan came third in class 3..
Wesley last won the team event in 1959 so it was a fantastic achievement.
The team cup is on the left in the photo and the ladies is on the right.
All Wesley past pupils are welcome to join us next year for our own golf day in Rathfarnham in June and the ASU competition in Beech Park in July. ... See MoreSee Less
