Congratulations to the First Year Camogie girls on their recent success in the Munster blitz played in Charleville.
Ennis were Cashel’s first opponents, spearheaded by midfielder Áine O’Dwyer (3 – 1) Cashel ran out convincing winners. In the second game Cashel were up against Regina Mundi from Cork. In this game Sarah Delaney proved exceptional and scored 2 – 1 from mid-field. Cashel faced a strong Borrisokane side in the semi-final but once again the girls from near The Rock were successful. In achieving this win, Sorcha Ryan and Karin Blair were particularly influencial.
The pairing for the final was Cashel versus Killaloe. Cashel dominated the first half and led 4 – 4 to no score at the interval. As expected, Killaloe staged a come-back in the second half and scored 2 - 1 in the opening minutes. However, Sorcha Ryan in defence steadied the ship while in attack Karin Blair notched 1 -2 to seal victory : 5 – 6 to 2 – 1. Team: Kate Gayson Molloy, Sarah O’Connor, Abi Muldoon, Áine O’Dwyer, Sarah Delaney, Ciara Parker, Emma Ryan, Karin Blair, Amy Hourigan, Clodagh O’Dwyer, Abi Ryan, Megan Hahessy, Sorcha Ryan, Millie Keane, Sarah O’Connor, Brigid Ryan, Bridget Quinlan, Kellie Ryan,
Business Quiz Final
Four Junior Cert Business students – Tom Davern, Muireann O’Connor, Briain Davern, and Gavin Ahern - attended the Cima and BSTAI Schools Quiz Final in L.I.T., Thurles, two weeks ago. Their third place listing in the regional final in Limerick some time earlier opened this door for them.
In the final,teams from twenty four schools across Ireland attempted the very difficult set of questions – both general knowledge and business specific – over ten rounds. Luck was not on the side of the CCS team but, as this was the school’s first time to participate in the event, it was a great achievement for the team to reach the national final under the tuition of their Business teacher Deirdre Reddan.
International Student Rep.
Cashel Community School is immensely proud that one of its 6th Year students has been elected to the position of International Representative of the Irish Second-Level Students’ Union, namely; Declan Burgess.
A native of Cashel, Declan is busy preparing for the Leaving Certificate Exam in June. However, he has always found time to engage wholeheartedly in a variety of school-based enterprises, including the school’s senior student council. Immediately after he completes the Leaving Cert, Declan will set out to represent the Irish Second-Level Students’ Union at various meetings and conferences in Europe. We wish him every success in this exciting role.
A `Hometown` Star
A major new Irish boy-band called “Hometown” has been launched by Louis Walsh. All at Cashel Community School are delighted to see past student Dayl Cronin feature in the ranks of this new band. Ever since he entered CCS, Dayl was renowned for his stunning dance routines performed in talent shows and in school musicals. In 2009, combining song and dance, he excelled in the lead role of Jack in that year’s production of “Disco Inferno”. It was no surprise then when, after his Leaving Cert, he enrolled in a performing arts degree course in England. As he now enters the “big time” he is wished every success by all at his “homeschool”.
