Trinity Crest

TCD Association & Trust - Ontario Branch

Tuesday, Oct 16, 2018 - 6:30 pm

Our regular monthly pub night in October has been moved to Tuesday October 16th to accommodate the visit to Toronto of two guests from college, Gerard McHugh (Dean of Development and an Associate Professor in the Trinity Business School who was Dean of the School from 2001 through 2011) and Alex Fritz (Associate Director Development – USA, Trinity Development & Alumni). This will be a firsthand chance for attendees to catch up on news from college and the Business School as well as alumni affairs in North America. As always such gatherings are a good opportunity to meet old friends and new, and to expand your network.

All alumni and friends, particularly recent graduates and new arrivals in Ontario, are welcome to attend. As usual we will be at P.J.O'Brien from 6:30 pm on. P.J.O'Brien is at 39 Colborne Street in Toronto (between King Street East and Wellington Street East), the cross street is Leader Lane, the King subway station is close, and there are plenty of nearby parking lots. Food is available from the bar menu. More information is at

An area in the bar has been reserved for us, but in anticipation of a bigger turnout we may move to a larger part of the pub. Bearing this in mind, it would be very useful to have an idea of numbers that might attend, so we ask that if you are thinking of coming to register on Eventbrite (click here). Please note this is a free event (no charge), the registration is only for numbers for planning purposes.

Hoping to see many of you there.
