Congratulations to our 2nd year students on their tremendous achievement in winning the All-Ireland title for Formula 1 in Schools competition that took place in Newry, County Down last Wednesday. Despite facing stiff opposition from schools in the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom, Jack Murphy, Ellen Clarke, Laoise Ryan and Pádraig Connolly claimed this years title ahead of 50 plus competitors. They won the Entry Class, along with fastest car, best portfolio, and sponsorship & marketing award. A huge word of praise also to their teacher and mentor Mr. Jack Spillane for his guidance & many hours of diligence that culminated with his students winning this most prestigious award.


Students from 1st to 6th years enjoyed a day of total fun recently when an array of various activities were undertaken ranging from Wrecking Ball, Obstacle Course, Wipeout, and Rodeo Bull, to Tug of War, egg & spoon races, Basketball and soccer match v. teachers (which the teachers won!). This annual Fun Day has now become an integral part of the Coláiste Mhuire calender hugely enjoyed by all.

Well done to the u15 Rugby team under the guidance of Mr. O’Sullivan on their superb win over Nenagh College in their recent County blitz held in Clanwilliam Rugby grounds in Tipp Town. While other results mitigated against us from progressing, feedback was most positive as the majority of a very young squad look forward to our upcoming 1st year competition that takes place over coming weeks.


Congratulations to our students who were awarded certificates in Junior, Intermediate and Senior categories at the recent Student County Enterprise Competition in LIT Tipperary. Among the business products undertaken were wood turning products, customised candles, recycled wooden and Christmas decorations. Our TY students created a machine to efficiently cut up kindling and make enough profits to purchase a saw and invest in their business. Third year student Oscar Lipinski won third place in the Intermediate Category. Huge thanks also to Business teachers Ms. Bergin & Ms. Molumby for their guidance & mentoring with each student.
