We were delighted to welcome Danny Reilly back to St. Joseph’s to perform for the boys on this week of celebration. Danny delighted the boys with his songs and answered questions on a wide variety of topics. Many thanks to Danny for entertaining us today.


Minister of Education and Skills, Richard Bruton, spoke at St. Joseph’s today in commemoration of our 150th anniversary and unveiled a commemorative stone.

Ms Anne McCabe, principal of St. Joseph’s BNS, welcomed the minister and other distinguished guests including former deputy mayor of Dublin Edie Wynne, former principal of St. Joseph’s Mr. Matt Hume, chairperson of the board of management Fr. Philip Bradley, Kate O’Connell TD, Councillor Anne Feeney, members of the St. Joseph’s Parent Association and the management board.

All Ireland winning Denis Bastick and Eoghan O’Gara brought Sam Maguire to St. Joseph’s BNS today to help us celebrate our 150 years. Denis and Eoghan are past pupils of our school and they were joined by the Dublin hurlers Chris and Neil Bennett and Jack McVeigh. They spoke to the boys about their memories of St. Joseph’s and they answered some very probing questions from the audience. We wish to thank our visitors and hope that they have played a part in inspiring the next generation.
