Congratulations to our BT Young Scientists Róisín Ryan & Katie McCarthy, both 1st year students on their excellent project displayed at the RDS that involved successfully generating a Bioplastic from milk which they believe has the potential to replace polluting synthetic plastics that take hundreds of years to breakdown in the environment. Their project was highly commended by the judges. A huge thanks also to the Science Department and in particular to Science teachers Ms. Smith & Ms. Hayes for their guidance and support to all our entrants.


Bhí seisiún ceoil, amhránaíochta agus craic an Deardaoin seo caite sa Choláiste trí mheán na Gaeilge. A thoroughly enjoyable session took place as organised by Roinn na Gaeilge last Thursday & will be part of our events calendar on a weekly basis. Flutes, tin whistles, bodhráns, guitars, fiddles and button accordeons played reels, jigs, hornpipes, and marches while students also danced the Walls of Limerick, The Siege of Ennis agus An Dreoilín, and all through the medium of Irish. Tá ‘chuile dhuine ag súil leis an gcéad ceann eile cheana féin!


Our u15 team progressed to the quarter final stages of the Munster Cup after a comprehensive victory over Comeragh College at Clonmel. Both teams were evenly matched in the early stages and little separated them until a few rapid scores and relentless attacking from the Thurles side’s forwards, including a well taken Eoin Craddock goal seemed to deflate the Comeragh side. This was to be the trend for the remainder of the match. Several players delivered superb displays including Odhrán Donaghy (0-02), Stephen Maher (0-01), Jim Ryan, Aaron Holland (2-00), Eoin Craddock (1-14), Michael Keogh, Joe Cornally (0-03) and man of the match Lee Ferncombe (0-01) that saw Coláiste Mhuire triumph on a 3-21 to 0-05 scoreline and set up a Munster Quarter final date with St. Paul’s of Waterford.
