The1972 Colmánach was the first magazine to be produced and printed entirely in-house at St. Colman's College. It was also the first of three editions of the magazine published during the 1970s. It is fair to say that the driving force behind these editions was Fr. Bertie Troy, a man who was without doubt, one of the most talented, creative and innovative people ever to grace the halls of St. Colman's.
The magazine was just over 80 pages long and featured a hand written address by the President of the College. Other items of note were: Day to Day Diary, Report on 1888 Re-union day, Sports round up, Entertainment section, Poetry, Humour, Current Affairs and many photographs of the year.
The '72 editorial committee consisted of Tony Keogh, Fr. Bertie Troy, Michael Cronin, Mr. Oliver Ryan, Pat Curtin, Jim O'Brien, Neil Corbett, Eamon McCarthy, Denis Tynan and Michael O'Flynn.
