Our senior hurling team opened their campaign last Thursday in the Munster Cup with a comprehensive victory over Newcastlewest College from Limerick.
The match was played in perfect conditions for hurling at Nenagh and both sides for long periods of the first half were evenly matched.
Newcastlewest had some fine hurlers but ultimately couldn’t get to grips with the relentless pressure and excellent hurling being displayed by our midfield pairing of Cayley Maher and Seán Butler as well as Aaron Maher. We finished on a resounding scoreline of 3-17 to 2-05. Very impressive on the day were Caley Maher, Jack O’Connell, Seán Butler, Gary Donnelly, Aaron Ryan Casey, Peter McNamara, David Manning. and Curtis Ryan.
Gaisce trip to Kerry
Our TY students will pay a visit to the Kingdom this Monday and Tuesday as part of their Gaisce program to climb Irelands’ highest mountain Corrán Tuathail. It is also a special outing for the many non-national E.F. (Education First) students. This year sees a large cohort of students undertake their education with us from such places as Spain, Switzerland, Croatia, France, Italy, Austria and Germany.
The Green Schools committee under the guidance of Ms. Smith has been industrious in compiling together a program for this academic year to continue from the positive work undertaken last year in promoting a cleaner and greener school. Our students last year placed huge emphasis on recycling and cutting down on waste.
