ABOUT The Union

The DCPPU has held social gatherings for past pupils and actively engaged in social services since its foundation in 1914. Prof Mary Hayden was the first President of the Union. Early activities included a Night  School, Sewing Guild, Dances, Céilí, Whist Drives and Dinners.  Monies raised at these successful events were distributed to the  Missions, local charities and used in the setting up of St Dominic’s Girls Club for street traders and the Old  Folks Club.

Current very successful annual activities include a Summer Lunch, Retreat, Mass of Remembrance, Golf Society Outing, Benevolent Fund , Home Visits to elderly past pupils and various  fund-raising events.  The DCPPU Excellence in Education Award based on Leaving Certificate results is presented at the Annual Lunch.
