Prior to the school’s closure, our TYs fundraised a fantastic €857 for the Irish Wheelchair Association and were looking forward to competing in the All Ireland Wheelchair Basketball Finals this term. We hope that this money will be a great help to the association during these challenging times.
Congratulations to second year student Aoibhinn Keegan — one of two runners up nationwide in the GAA museum’s junior cycle creative writing competition. Aoibhinn’s entry ‘A GAA Legend’ has won her a host of prizes, and an invitation to the winner’s lunch with the judging panel in Croke Park. Well done to Aoibhinn and her mentor Mr Slevin! A great achievement.
