Gaelic Football

Well done to our u15 Gaelic football team on their superb victory in the 1st round of the Munster Corn Mhic Chonmara last week against Coláiste an Chraoibhín from Fermoy. This was our first competitive outing for this year’s squad and confidence was high following good turnouts at training sessions. Despite this being an away tie, Coláiste Mhuire settled into the game quite early with some well taken scores from the in-form Tom O’Reilly who finished with a personal tally of 1-05. Others to impress on the day in a comprehensive 2-07 to 2-02 victory were Danny Slattery, David Doyle, Ódhrán Donaghy, Eoin Craddock (0-01), Seán Ryan (1-01), Caylum Gooney and Luke Galvin.


Our senior hurling team enjoyed a resounding victory over Coláiste Daibhéid from Cork to qualify for the Munster quarter final of the Corn Sheáin Uí hAnragáin where they will face Comeragh College.

Our u16.5 squad traveled with huge optimism to play in their Munster quarter final against Tralee CBS at Rathkeale GAA Grounds. Having enjoyed comprehensive victories in previous rounds, confidence was high but ultimately we succumbed to the opposition by one point (1-16 to 1-15) in a well fought contest to lose out on a Munster semi final spot.

Our 1st year team made the short trip to Dr. Morris Park to play in a schools county tournament and recorded victories over Nenagh CBS, Cistercian College and a draw with Rockwell College to qualify for the penultimate stages in a fortnight.

Hairspray Musical

We wish all the cast the very best of luck on 26th & 27th October as they take to the stage for this year’s school musical with the production of Hairspray. Immense preparations have gone into this year’s musical from staff & students. Go néirí leo go léir!

Historic Walk

History students from 1st year ventured outside the classroom and undertook a historic walk around Thurles with their History teachers. This transpired to be most enjoyable as they were exposed to the plethora of sites & places of interest in the ancient town. Among the tour were St. Mary’s Church, the site of the 1174 Battle of Thurles, castles, the 1798 Monument, placenames, and Hayes Hotel where 27 cups of hot chocolate went down a treat!
