The Trinity College Association of Northern Ireland was inaugurated in 1924. It is the oldest of all the Alumni Associations. It began, largely, as an after dinner association when graduates decided on forming a separate association following Partition.
The idea for such an association stemmed from a dinner organised by a "dinner committee" in 1923, following which it was proposed that a meeting be held on the 10th December 1924 to formally set up the Association.
A copy of the original minutes of that meeting and a menu of the First Formal Annual Dinner of the Association, held on the 14th December 1925, can be accessed by selecting 'About Us' from the Menu.
The current President of the Association is William Devlin; the Secretary is Mark Conlon and the Treasurer Mrs Eithne Ryan. The e-mail address of the Association is listed on the left and comments and contributions are welcome from Alumni of this Association and fellow members of Alumni Branches throughout the world.
15 January 2015: At the time of William's death it was a great comfort to receive consolation from so many fellow Alumni and friends. In particular we extend our thanks to all those who sent Mass and Sympathy cards, letters of condolence, visited the family home, donated generously to SVP society. We would especially like to express our gratitude for attendance at the removal and Requiem Mass. William was fervent in his support of Trinity College Dublin, and we in turn have gained an extra dimension to our lives through that association. May we now offer this due acknowledgement as a token of our appreciation.
Monica, Peter and Catherine.
