De La Salle College Churchtown was founded in 1952 and many
people have passed through its doors since then. Whilst the College
is proud of all of them, here are some who have achieved perhaps a

International rugby player Luke Fitzgerald, former members of
Republic of Loose 'Brez' Breslin and Declan 'Deco' Quinn who left
in 2009, Jamie Lee D'Alton who won Best Sports

Mission', and Rory Stokes, Paul Mooney and John McGrath of The
Sussed who had a No. 3 hit on the charts in Ireland in 1981 called
'Don't Swim On The East Coast'.
