Message from the President

As a proud member of the Class of 1984, I am honored to represents all past students of Blackrock College as your President for the academic year 2017/18. Today our Union has over 6300 members making us the largest past pupil’s organisation in Ireland and the UK.

In addition to the significant range of activities we undertake in Ireland, all of which are listed on this website, we also operate UK North and American branches and have representatives in many of the World’s largest cities. Thanks to the support of the College we operate a dedicated Union Centre in the College staffed by Brigid O'Byrne. You are welcome to visit the College out of school hours and you can also visit the Union Centre while here.

Our objective is to support all past pupils of Blackrock College and to assist you in engaging with your fellow past pupils and the College. As a result we are now offering membership of the Union to past pupils at no cost to you.  If you wish to become a member or are unsure whether you are, simply email us at unionoffice@rock.ie with your name, your final year in the College, your email address and your mobile number and we will confirm your membership or details by return.

We communicate with all past pupils globally through this website, email, social and by phone. We run a large number of reunion events in Ireland for past pupils ranging from Rockmen who have just left the College up to events for our more senior members. We run reunion events in the United States, U.K. and in other international locations.  We assist the College through a wide range of activities and support four deserving charitable causes including the Blue and White Group for fellow Rockmen experiencing difficulties in their lives.

The Union is run by past pupils for past pupils so please let us know if you would like to become involved. Please contact us to either join the Union or to update your contacts details so we can establish communication with you. My fellow Union Committee members and I look forward to meeting many of you in person over the coming year.

Best Regards

Eunan O’Carroll

President 2017-2018
