On 10th January, the Carmelite School at Terenure, Dublin, celebrated its 150th Anniversary. The event has been marked by a series of events throughout 2009-2010. Although somewhat hindered by the heavy snow and bitterly cold weather, the day itself was marked by a nationally televised Eucharistic Celebration and short programme on this educational project of the Irish Carmelites. The Prior General, Fr. Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm., and the Councillors General John Keating and Raúl Maraví, joined the Provincial of the Irish Province, Fr. Martin Kilmurray and members of the Terenure community for the celebration.
Terenure College is the oldest Carmelite school of modern times and a significant history of the school entitled "Terenure College 1860-2010 - A History" written by Emeritus Professor of History at University College Dublin, Fergus A. D'Arcy, has been published to mark the anniversary. At the end of January, the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese will pay an official visit to the school, and in April of this year the first International Carmelite Schools Congress will take place in Terenure.
