We are pleased to introduce our Gala Speaker: Alain Rolland!



"The best referee of the modern era", Alain Rolland is a retired Irish rugby union referee and former player. He played provincially for Leinster, and gained three caps for Ireland. He refereed the final of the 2007 Rugby World Cup, and was an assistant referee in the final of the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

During his playing days as a scrum-half, Rolland earned three caps for Ireland. He won 40 provincial caps for Leinster, and played club rugby for Blackrock College. He also played 11 times for English club Moseley during the 1996/97 season.

Rolland retired as a player at the start of the professional era and began refereeing, with his first Test appointment coming on 19 September 2001 when Wales beat Romania 81-9 at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium. He made his Six Nations refereeing debut six months later, when France beat Scotland 22-10 at Murrayfield, with his first Tri-Nations match following in July 2003, with New Zealand’s record 52-16 defeat of South Africa. He finished his refereeing career with a total of 66 test matches.

Rolland refereed in the 2003 and 2007 Rugby World Cups and was appointed to referee the final of the 2007 Rugby World Cup. Rolland was selected to a ten man referee panel for the 2011 Rugby World Cup. He was an assistant referee in the final.

At Rosemont we are committed to providing opportunities for our students to excel in all aspects of their learning. This is also true of our approach to learning with technology.This fundraising campaign will allow us to upgrade our technology by adding a suite of tablets to our IT equipment for classroom use. Higher-spec devices will enable students and teachers to develop our current best practice use of technology to enhance learning.Teachers will continue to support students in identifying key learning apps, preparing them for the discerning use of technology in their third-level studies and careers. By Rosemont providing an in-house tablet supply, we can continue combining established best teaching practices with the focused use of technology while avoiding additional costs for families. To achieve this, we need to raise €25,000. By supporting Rosemont School’s Gala & Auction, you are supporting your daughter and her education while having a lot of fun!
