An invitation has been issued by the Presentation Secondary School in Thurles to Laois people to attend a school reunion for students who left the school between 1942 and 2002 on Saturday, September 21.

Many former students have moved on to live in Laois and other neighbouring counties and some from Laois boarded over the years at the Presentation School.

The event is being organised in conjunction with The Gathering 2013. It is a ticket-only event and tickets are priced €30. Tickets can be purchased over the phone 087 7037861, via email presthurlesreunion@gmail.com, or in four outlets in Thurles: The Bookworm, The Bridge Café, Mockler’s Pharmacy and The Gift Rooms.

Tickets will not be available at the door on the day of the event and must be purchased in advance by this Thursday, September 12.

Registration will begin in the secondary school at 2pm on the day and proceedings will draw to a close at approximately 7.30pm. The boarding school will be open between 12.30pm and 2pm, for any boarders who wish to view their old home away from home.

A cheese and wine reception followed by a hot fork buffet will be provided on the day. There will be a huge amount of photos on display, which will aid people in their own personal nostalgic trips down memory lane. There will also be a mass in the sports complex.

If anyone requires further information email Susan at presthurlesreunion@gmail.com, or phone Dearbhla on 087 7037861 and they will answer any queries.
