Background to our First Gathering

On the 20th February 1987 the late Father Eamonn McGivern one of "The Good Old Abbey Boys "was requested to organise a Mass for deceased members of 1950 Senior Class,their Christian Brothers and Teachers.  The Mass was celebrated in St. Peters Warrenpoint and afterwards with dinner in the Aylesfort Restaurant.  There was an excellent attendance of 1950 Senior  class Past pupils there wives and the widows of deceased old boys of that year.We were very lucky that Bro. Newell and Mr. Fitzpatrick were able to take part in our celebrations. 

At a later date and as a result of discussions at that gathering a small steering group was established consisting of the late Raymond Mc Court,Charlie Symth,Ted Goodman, Mick Joyce And Jack Kavanagh to ensure the arrangement of an annual Mass for deceased past pupils and commemoration of the Abbey School the Christian Brothers and teachers who had given so many of us so much.
