We are very proud to announce that the new President of the LPPU is our own Alison Byrne (Class of ’85).
Alison takes over the reins from Oisine Hemeryk (Loreto Dalkey). For many years, Alison has been a hardworking member of the LPPU, and it’s great to see her get the recognition she deserves. Understandably Alison will be stepping back from her duties on the Green Past Pupils’ Committee for the duration of her Union presidency. We wish her all the very best at the Union helm, and we look forward to seeing many Green girls supporting her at the various Union events.
If you’re a golfer, you might consider participating in the LPPU Golf Outing, on
Friday, April 30th, at the Hermitage Golf Club, Lucan.
Time Sheet opens Thursday, 8th April.

The Loreto Past Pupils’ Union held their Annual Christmas Lunch in the Shelbourne Hotel on Saturday 5 December. In excess of 150 attended, many of whom had travelled long distances to meet again with friends. It was a joyful occcasion, evidenced by the buzz of greetings and chat.
Sr Ríonach represented our Provincial, Sr Teresa Mac Paul, who could not be with us. Another Loreto Sister, Mary Elizabeth Kirk, past pupil of Loreto Letterkenny, who works in the Loreto Mission in Peru, was home for a short break, and we were happy to invite her as our Guest of Honour. We were moved and enthused by her account of her work with the poorest of people in that vast country. She acknowledged with gratitude the financial support she has received from the Loreto Past Pupils’ Union and the Loreto Carol Singers, and told us what this had enabled her to do for the women she is endeavouring to lift from dire poverty.
From Loreto Bray, we had the class of 1959. This was a wonderful reunion of classmates, some of whom had travelled from overseas to be with old friends, and they were each presented with a rose and small gift by Oisine Hemeryck, Union President. Quite a few Green Past Pupils attended the function, and gathered for a ‘Green’ photo at the end.
The Annual Lunch is the biggest LPPU social event at which acquaintances are renewed and strengthened. If any group of Green Past Pupils would like us to organise a class reunion at the Christmas Lunch, just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org

Inaugural bag-packing took place in M&S, Grafton Street on 4th Dec 2009. The Green and the LPPU Committee supplied the bag-packers. It was hard work but generated plenty of goodwill and interest in the work of the Union. €2500 was raised and we hope to repeat the event.
The annual Carol Singing took place on 10th December in Grafton Street. Enthusiastic singers were provided by The Green, Foxrock and Dalkey. Dalkey almost convinced Michael Bublé to join in!! The Doorman from Brown Thomas got a fantastic reception when he provided a very nice chair for Sr Marion at her keyboard. Great fun was had by all. Just under €3000 was raised.
The event was in aid of a number of charities, including the St. Vincent De Paul and the Homeless Girls Society.
