Tickets cost €30 per person. Like so many events of this kind, the rule of ‘the more the merrier’ applies and so I strongly encourage you to get in contact with college friends and celebrate this special milestone together. For more information, please contact Murt Coleman. 

Please note: Visitor parking is available on campus in the Dangan Park and Ride car park. Visitors can park in blue lined spaces only (payment is required) and take the shuttle bus to the south side of campus, getting off at the last stop. This carpark can be accessed via the entrance to Corrib Village, off the Upper Newcastle Road.

For easier access to the event, external paid parking is also available inside the gates of the Cathedral. 

This event is organised by a reunion committee and is not an official University of Galway event.
