Branch News

It’s about ten years since the last OC Irish Branch Dinner and, with 2019 being Campbell’s 125th Anniversary, this is a good opportunity to catch up with old friends and hear news about the school’s development as an international campus. An invitation to the Dinner and all the activities, is thereby extended to you, your spouse/partner and friends to join the Society at the comfortable 4-star Castle Dargan Estate, Co. Sligo.

An informal drinks reception will “kick off” the weekend at Castle Dargan on Friday 4th at 9.30 pm and please let me know if you intend to be there?

Then on Saturday before the Ireland Branch Dinner, various activities are offered during the morning and afternoon, details of which are below. OCs, spouses, partners and friends can enjoy recreational activities on Saturday morning, and on Sunday too. So, why not make a weekend of it and book a table for ten!

For the main event, there will be a formal Drinks Reception at 7.00pm on Saturday 5th October 2019, will be followed by the Irish Branch Dinner at 7.30 pm. The OC President, Sam McIlveen (6446) will welcome you to a sumptuous dinner of high quality local produce, which will include “musical interludes” by renowned pianist, Philip Hammond (5204) - all are welcome.

Dress: Lounge Suits                                                                                                                                           Cost €68 - £60 per person
