Brenda Tondreau, Joanne King, Joyce Seto, Lynn Boudreault, Kerry Ann King and Lise Lafond were great pals in the 1970s. Among this group from the Class of 1975 are the “Blarney Girls” – Brenda, Joyce, Lynn and Kerry Ann – who travelled to Ireland together in 2010 and and kissed the Blarney Stone.

Some 1,200 alumni, students and staff who attended or worked at the school over the past 70 years crowded the hallways and the gymnasium of the home of the Fighting Irish on the evening of May 18. Current principal André Gosselin said he had never seen anything like it before at St. Patrick’s High School!
