As the schools are approaching their 150th. anniversay in 2014 we would like to remember all of our past pupils, living and dead, who attended here over that great length of time. Most of the boys and young men of their day grew and matured to be good members of society, socities that they found themselves in, whether here in Ireland or in foreign lands. Others became famous for one reason or another and left their distinctive mark on the world of law, the arts, sport, politics and many fields of craft and skill. Some were not fortunate to live a full life and left this world before their time.
Others made decisions that had life changing consequences. Others lived their lives to the best of their abilities and did their best for the new generations coming after them. All who passed through the gates of Synge Street schools have left a mark, they have left a presence, a spirit of having passed that way.
