Belvedere welcomes Sir Terry

sirterry_01Belvedere College afforded a great welcome to Sir Terry Wogan (Class of ’56) on his return to the school for the Union’s Annual Dinner on Friday November 6th. He was invited to be the Guest Speaker at the event by this year’s President, Frank Young, a classmate and longtime friend. True to form, Sir Terry entertained his audience of over 230 past pupils and guests with some hilarious, and typically self deprecating, anecdotes from his career as a leading TV and Radio personality and his fond memories of his years in Belvedere were a particular hit with the past pupils. The picture shows, left to right: Gerry Foley, Headmaster; Sir Terry; Fr. Derek Cassidy SJ, Rector; and Frank Young, Union President.
