In September 1954, 48, mostly young out of school, varying in age from 17 to 26 started out at Greenmount Agricultural College, on a one year Certificate Course in Agriculture.
Last week 12 of those, out of a possible eighteen, met up, almost to the day 65 years later, for a reunion in Cookstown.
Brexit was not mentioned all day.
Tales and stories of times at Greenmount were recounted – some possibly added to.
Friendships were strengthened and some rekindled.
The very enjoyable day ended up with the singing of ‘Auld Lang Syne.
