Special guests abound!

The Gonzaga-in-Derry program has played host to a number of special guests from the local community over the last few days.

Charlie McMenamin and James Greer, former combatants from each side of the sectarian divide in Northern Ireland, paid a visit to the program to tell their stories and share their experiences of peacebuilding and reconciliation with students.

Meanwhile, local photojournalist Sinead Crumlish brought her camera expertise to the classroom, hosting a photo workshop for the students and sharing her stories as a young person growing up in both Northern Ireland and the Republic.

All special guests have been treated to traditional Irish luncheons, where they have tucked in to a variety of meat and potato dishes with students and faculty in a most convivial setting.
