ALUMNI REEL
IN THE YEARS
The Classes of 1955, 1965, 1970, 1975, 1980, 1990, 1995 and 2005 returned to RCSI
last August to celebrate their class reunions as part of the Alumni Gathering 2015.
RCSI
Matters spoke to some of the 282 Alumni, who travelled from over 16 countries, about
their memories and what it meant to them to be back in the College
Class of 1980.
"It's great to be back
and to see how the
College has evolved.
It's physically a very
di erent place to when
I was here. Life as a
student in RCSI was a
great adventure. As well
as medical training, we
were being introduced
to the social and cultural
life in Ireland. I became
a big fan of traditional
Irish music and I loved
Planxty. At home in
KwaZulu-Natal in South
Africa I still have Planxty
records today."
Dr Reshma Badal
(Class of 1980)
Class of 1990.
"It is great to see
Professor Alan
Johnson here. Over
the many years of
playing rugby in RCSI,
Kevin Tempany and
others and I would
look over in the
freezing rain, and
there would be no
other supporters there
except for Alan and
his dog! So thank you
Alan!"
Dr Donnie McGrath
(Class of 1990)
