Munster Football Semi Final
Ballybacon Grange was the venue for our eagerly awaited Munster u15 Gaelic Football semi final against Pobalscoil San Nioclás from Rinn Ó gCuanach in Waterford.The Waterford side dominated opening proceedings with an early point and shortly afterwards hit the crossbar with a blistering short. Coláiste Mhuire however, settled with a couple of points and began to play with more confidence. The second half was equally competitive but ultimately there was only going to be one outcome as Coláiste Mhuire booked their place in a Munster Final where they will face more formidable opposition in The North Mon from Cork City. Best of luck to all involved and well done again on a superb victory.
Gael Linn Debating
Well done to the junior debating team that made the journey to Loreto College Clonmel to take part in the regional section of the Gael linn junior debating competition. ‘Séard an Rún a bhí ann ná ‘Ba chóir deireadh a chur le Rós Thrá Lí mar chomórtas’. Bhí caighdeán an-ard sa chomórtas seo agus tréaslaimid foireann an Choláiste Eoin Craddock, Kayleigh Cronin agus Rebecca Elphick a rinne argóint in aghaidh an rún seo. Taithí iontach a bhí ann agus cé nár bhuamar ar an lá, bhíodar go dial ar fad agus táthar ag súil go mór leis an gcéad díospóireacht eile. Rath as saothar!

This transpired to be an absorbing contest contest between two evenly matched teams that delivered a fully committed performance of the highest standard. While leading for most of the match, it looked like Coláiste Mhuire were destined to progress to the final until cruelly, two late points sealed a one point victory for the Limerick opposition on a 1-10 to 2-06 scoreline. Superb performances on the day were delivered by Martin Reilly, Luke Galvin, Éamon Ryan, Conor Ryan and Neil Holland.
