Cancellation of Special General Meeting of Rathkeale College Old Boys' Association

The notice of the Special General Meeting (SGM) to be held on Sunday, 20 September 2020 at 4:00 PM at Rathkeale College is withdrawn.

On 7 September 2020 Rathkeale Old Boys' Association (ROBA) gave notice of the SGM. The SGM was to discuss and vote upon ROBA's proposed assistance to Trinity Schools Trust Board (TSTB) to acquire a significant asset of benefit to Rathkeale College. We said the details of that proposal were commercially sensitive but would be disclosed at the SGM, or earlier, if they could be. At the SGM, members would want to know all the details of the proposal and ROBA's likely involvement in it.

Unfortunately, again for reasons of commercial sensitivity affecting the proposal, the details of it cannot be fully disclosed by TSTB to ROBA yet. Accordingly, the proposal cannot be considered by members at the SGM and members cannot decide the manner and extent to which ROBA could assist TSTB with the proposal.

A new SGM will be convened when TSTB can make full disclosure to ROBA and notice of that new SGM will be given to members.

The Committee of ROBA thanks members for their interest as a result of the notice of the SGM and apologises for any inconvenience this cancellation causes, events being beyond our control.

For any enquiries about this withdrawal of notice of the SGM, please contact
