A Unique Occasion – Roger’s Story.

Elm Park Golf Club, Dublin, March 20th 2009.

Dermot Roughan captained and Johnnie Quirke was the vice captain of the Blackrock College Leinster Schools Junior Cup winning side on March 20th 1959. They were under 15 years of age at the time.

The initiative to get the team together 50 years later on the same date was put in place via emails and phone calls.

John (Yapper) Regan, travelled from the Cayman Islands, Paid Murray from New England in the USA and I travelled from Mijas Costa in southern Spain to join with those living in Ireland.

One team member, Dermot Keegan, could not make the trip from Mumbai in India. Umberto Jaconelli and Chips O’Beirne also were unable to attend.

Present were John Regan, Walter Prendergast, Roger Cummiskey, Dermot Roughan, Jimmy Dillon and Johnnie Quirke. Forwards included. Paid Murray, Dave Robinson, Frank Convery, Denis Gill, Garrett Gill, John Blunden and Bryan O’Brien. Also in attendance was G M Slattery.

This was certain…
