The students of Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed were treated to a Fun Day on Friday 23rd March. The photos show an eager group of students with their teachers looking forward to climbing The Devils Bit. As part of their Fun Day a vast array of activities took place in the Dome such Rodeo Bull, Wrecking Ball and Wipeout. The Fun Day which is now an annual event in the school calendar was a resounding success and thoroughly enjoyed by all.


The 3rd year students of Coláiste Mhuire ventured off to Nenagh recently to undertake a study of Nenagh District & Circuit Courts. Students were most impressed with their day out as they viewed proceedings of live court sessions with Judge Elizabeth McGrath, paid a visit to the holding cells beneath the courthouse and and contrasted the life of modern prison conditions with that of the adjacent 19th century unpleasant and dank Nenagh Gaol, where the they stood on the execution spot of the Cormac Brothers in 1858. A huge thanks to Nenagh Heritage Centre and to our guide from Nenagh court Mr. Tony Canning who made our trip a most exciting & informative day out.


Well done to the 1st & 2nd year students of Coláiste Mhuire that played recently in the annual Newport College Handball Tournament in Newport for ETB schools. The tournament included singles & doubles competitions for boys and girls. The standard was extremely high on the day but Coláiste Mhuire still qualified for three finals with Stephen Healy winning gold in the 1st year Boys singles event. Huge thanks to Newport College and in particular to Cathal Bourke for organising this excellent tournament now in its second year.
