St. Columba’s College appeal to widen the cricket pitch

Just up the road from Patrick Pearse’s school, Scoil Éanna, there was a Protestant boarding school, St. Columba’s College, where the aim was to furnish the sons of the landed gentry with a decent education. Here the college appeals to old boys for a few quid to widen the cricket pitch, a need that is all the greater in view of the upcoming game against sister school Radley.
