The primary function of the Union is to provide a facility for the Alumni to interface with each other and the College and promote that relationship in a positive manner. It does this by facilitating class reunions of Past Students 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 years out and through the Union Annual Dinner (the Friday immediately after Easter) and the Annual Retreat (on Holy Thursday and Good Friday).
As well as branches in the Provinces of Ireland, there are also active branches of the Union in Great Britain and North America, which hold their own Reunion events on a regular basis.
