Following the tragic loss earlier this year of Captain Dara Fitzpatrick, Rescue 116, who was from class of 1989, a memorial run was organised on the grounds of Waterford Airport, her base for many years on 16th September 2017. Over 1,000 people participated in the run and a number of past pupils made the journey to support Dara’s friends and family. Dara's mother and sisters are all Past Pupils from Muckross Park College.
A special Mass for Dara was held on Sunday May 7th in the convent chapel. We were delighted that Dara’s family and classmates were able to join us. The new Union choir sang at the Mass which made the ceremony memorable.
