When Clive McCabe bought a small coffee roaster and stuck it in his garage in 1997, he became one of Ireland's first micro coffee roasters, and started a business at a time that Ireland was really only waking up to coffee. We talk with his son Stephen, manager and master coffee roaster, about the set up in Wicklow, from where they supply coffee to cafe owners across the island.

A schools rugby question... The JCT are into the last 8 of the Junior Cup having beaten St. Andrews this week. Anyone know when the last time Wesley got this far was? All I have is Semi-final in 1989 and Final in 1990 but surely some success since then?

*Edit
1989 - Semi Final
1990 - Final
1997 - Qtr Final
1999 - Qtr Final
...
2010 - Qtr Final
2017 - Qtr Final

David ShearmanRay McIlreavey's team in the early 1990s. Just ahead of Miller, Brian Moore et al. Not sure how they did in JCT.

Just as we all thought that the Christmas celebrations were drawing to a close, the class of '06 had one more reason to celebrate in 2016! On December 28th, our 10 year school reunion took place under the festive decorations and fairy lights of Bar Rua on Clarendon Street.

In arranging the event, Facebook provided the necessary communication tools, and it wasn't long before word had spread that the much anticipated 10 year reunion was actually going to take place! The event was well attended, with friends joining from the UK, Germany, Australia and even Afghanistan, with the festive season of course aiding in many of these returns.

It was absolutely wonderful to look around the room and watch the group come together, converse and catch up in such a natural and cohesive manner - reflective of the special group of students that made up the class of '06. 10 years on and it seemed that in many ways people had not changed at all! Although perhaps that is more reflective of my evolving perception of age and adulthood! There was music, drinks, laughter and some platters of food kindly funded by the Past Pupils Union for which we were all most grateful. And the night didn't stop there! Bar Rua was followed by plenty of dancing and good times in Pygmalion Bar just around the corner, with the night going on 'till the wee hours with friends of old and new.

On behalf of the class of '06, a special thank you to Lynn McCrave who kindly attended our reunion and said a few warm words, and to the Wesley College Past Pupils Union for their generous donation. A wonderful night and fantastic opportunity to reconnect with such a great group of friends. - Ronan Motyer (Class of '06)

The Senior Carol Service took place on Thursday 15th December in the Myles Hall in Wesley College. This was an uplifting programme of seasonal carols and music together with an address by Rev. Nigel Mackey. The choirs were led by Ms Dowzard and Ms Doyle and the surprise accompanist was none other than our own, Mr Frank Hughes. The night was an enormous success and much appreciated by the audience. I was delighted to see so many past pupils returning to their Alma Mater. - Lynn McCrave
