Trip to The Burren

Our Leaving Certificate Geography class enjoyed a trip to Doolin in Co. Clare to carry out their Geographical Investigation. The topic of this year’s work pertained to an investigation into processes of transportation and coastal landform formation in  a coastal environment. Despite some heavy showers forecasted, spirits were high among students as they ventured off to the North Clare Coast. The day was completed with a well earned meal in McDonalds!

Killary Trip

The Transition Year class of Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed ventured off to the wilds of Connemara for a team bonding couple of days in Killary Adventure Centre. Feedback from the trip was most positive as students engaged in an array of activities that included orienteering, the turf challenge, abseiling and the renowned Killary challenge. The outing proved especially enjoyable to our cohort of International students joining TY this year who were afforded the opportunity to see one of Ireland’s most picturesque regions.

School Musical

Rehearsals are in full swing presently as our students prepare for this year’s musical Hairspray. Under the guidance of Ms. Wallace, Ms. Hickey, Ms. Martin and Ms. Geaney, both commitment and diligence is paying dividends as students continue the tradition of huge successes in recent years with musicals such as Grease, Mamma Mia, Back to the 80s, Camp Rock etc..


Our 1st year students were treated to an afternoon last Thursday as renowned storyteller Liam De Búrca from Dublin regaled them with tales of mythology, folklore and personal experiences. This experience was thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance.
