Congratulations to Ms. Molumby and to all involved on the Active School Flag committee as Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed were duly awarded with The Active School Flag last week. Huge strides have been made in recent times by staff & students to make Coláiste Mhuire a more physically educated and physically active school community.

As part of the Active School Flag, we at Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed participated in the  Sky Sports Living for Sport project.  TY students have the pleasure of participating in this project under the guidance of Ms. Molumby and our Sky Sports Mentor, Alison Miller (Ireland’s Women’s Rugby Team). Their project has being running since September, where students had to undertake various challenges and run various sporting activities in the school environment.

Sky Sports Living for Sport has been running in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust. The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity working to build a brighter future for young people through PE and sport.

Sky Sports Living for Sport has undertaken independent research to measure the impact of the initiative on the students who take part. Sky Sports Living for Sport not only improves behaviour, it motivates, inspires and increases engagement.


For the second year running our energetic and busy Green Schools committee have been acknowledged for their diligence and passion to make Coláiste Mhuire cleaner & greener by attaining another coveted Green Flag. Students and staff have been most receptive to programs undertaken by the Committee and have become more environmentally conscious in recent years. Huge credit goes to staff members Ms. Smith & Ms. Geaney whose leadership on the committee has seen Coláiste Mhuire become the clean & green environment it is today.


Our Transition Year students are being afforded the unique opportunity to hone their artistic, creative and masonry skills as they work with local renowned sculptor Phillip Quinn on our Garden Project. The work has so far produced some impressive pieces carved out of wood and stone in our garden that is adjacent to The school assembly area. Well worth a view for anybody visiting Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed!


Hard luck to our u-15 squad who played St. Ailbe’s from Tipp Town in the u-15 Cup. Despite creating numerous opportunities and playing some excellent football, we failed to capitalise on our chances in contrast to St. Ailbe’s who defeated us on a scoreline of 4-2. Best for Coláiste Mhuire on the day were Luke Galvin, Caylum Gooney, Gary Delaney, Danny Slattery,  Cian Hevey and Gary Dwan. Beidh laethanta eile!
