Pavilion Grand Opening - Save the date!

The Rockwell College Union is delighted to announce the grand opening of our new Pavilion complex at Rockwell College, Saturday September 29th, at 2pm. All Rockwellians are invited to attend the opening, and to view the facilities. 

The event will be open to visitors from 1.30pm with all Rockwellians, including friends and family members, very welcome to attend the unveiling. Refreshments will be available, and the day will feature exhibition matches in rugby and hockey, more details of which can be found below. The day promises to be an excellent opportunity to indulge in the beautiful surrounds of the college in a social atmosphere, so we look forward to seeing many of you there!



Message from the College:

"After over four years of fundraising, planning and construction, Rockwell College is pleased to announce the official opening of the Fr. Aidan Lehane CSSp Pavilion. The building will add nine new changing rooms and the Kenneth Kelly Fitness Suite to the facilities available to pupils at Rockwell College. Situated adjacent to the old Pavilion, the building has been designed by Richard Rice, past pupil and architect with Healy Partners Limerick. Construction has taken just under 12 months, with the challenging weather conditions of 17/18 creating its own problems at times.

The building is a testament to the collaboration of parents and past pupils in their collective wish to provide the best of facilities to current and future pupils. Over E1 million has been raised to date and help is still needed to fill the shortfall of almost E100,000. Through the Rockwell College Union and in particular the singular efforts of Mr. Gay Mangan, in conjunction with the parents of our pupils, the project is ready to open.

Please join us on September 29th at 2pm for the event. All past & present pupils are welcome, as are current and past parents and friends. Gates open from 1:30pm for entertainment and refreshments. Following the Blessing & official opening by Mr. Paul McNaughton, attendees will be able to enjoy exhibition matches in senior rugby & hockey Vs St Michael’s CSSP and Crescent Comprehensive, Limerick.

Looking forward to seeing you there!"

The Pavilion:

The Fr Aidan Lehane Pavilion is the culmination of years of effort by Union members and College staff, and reflects Rockwell's continued commitment to sporting excellence. Rockwell students have enjoyed access to high-quality facilities, both within and without their academic environment, and the Pavilion is a much-anticipated step in maintaining these high standards.

We would like to thank again all of our sponsors, donors, and those who have contributed either their time or platform to the Pavilion campaign. This is a stunning achievement for all of us at the College and Union, and we are delighted to share this moment with our union colleagues.
