We will, however, be working to make this retreat happen in the future and will be working really hard over the summer to make sure this retreat is even better than our original plans! Due to the nature of our situation, it is impossible for us to give a possible date for the postponed retreat, but we will be sure to let you all know as soon as we do!Thank you so much the enthusiasm and excitement you showed about the retreat - it really helps us to stay motivated in planning it despite the disappointing circumstances!

"Hi all, just a quick update on the crim soc hoodies. We apologise for the delay in getting them to you. The latest update from the shipping company was that the hoodies would be ready by mid-term and we would be ready to collect final payments and give out the hoodies on the Monday back after mid-term. However, due to the college being closed until at least the 29th of March, we will have to wait until the college re-opens to do so. The full cost of a hoodie is €27, so for those of you who paid a deposit, the remainder will be due upon collection of the hoodie. Thanks for all your patience and understanding. We hope you have an enjoyable break and stay safe. "
