    Dear PPU,

    I have lost contact with many of my class and would like to find out if any of the class are attending the Centenary dinner in the Stillorgan Park Hotel.

    I left Muckross in 1974 or was it 1975? People in my class included Imelda Slattery, Mary Newman, Mary Mahony, Eliz Meldon, Sheila Quinn, Tina Pares (I’m in contact with Tina, she lives in Australia) Susan Corrigan etc.

    I would be delighted if you could help me with this.

    Kind regards,
    087 8242 343
