The Clongowes Parents Association is delighted to invite ALL parents to attend an evening on Monday 23rd January in the College with guest speaker Alan Quinlan. The event will commence at 7pm in the Refectory.

Alan is a former Irish Rugby Union Player who began playing for Munster in 1996. In 2010, Alan was voted Tipperary Person of the Year and most capped Munster player with 212 appearances. His list of honours include two Heineken Cup victories and was Man of the March when Munster beat Toulouse in the 2008 final. He earned 27 caps for Ireland scoring 30 points. He retired from rugby in May, 2011.

Alan suffered from anxiety-related depression on and off over the years, but learned to manage it with the support of others. He will speak about positive mental health and share some of the insights he has learned on his Life’s Journey including leadership and teamwork
