The East Munster Cup competition saw our u14 squad pitted against Fethard College where they played some excellent football following a tentative start. Eoin Craddock opened Coláiste Mhuire’s account with a well taken goal and subsequent good interplay saw goals from Seán McGrath and Brandon Mills to record a 4-1 victory and quarter-final tie against Tramore College. Our u16 squad weren’t as fortunate however as they succumbed to the same opposition after extra-time on a scoreline of 4-3 in a pulsating and hugely competitive tie.


Well done to 1st year boys volleyball team on their tournament successes recently in Loughrea, Co. Galway where they qualified for the semi-finals but ultimately came up short against a formidable Roscommon Community College. Despite not bringing home the cup, spirits were high as they look forward to more competitions next year, onwards & upwards!


Our 2nd year students were treated to a wellbeing excursion as they ventured off to the Clare Glens to enjoy the spectacular natural features of the area such as waterfalls, gorges and rapids, tracks & trails in this most scenic and picturesque part of the county. Thankfully, the weather was perfect on the day with blue skies and sunshine. A huge thanks to Mr. Phillip Rabbitte who organised this outing that was thoroughly enjoyed by all.


Congratulations to all our students who competed recently in the county athletics competitions at Templemore Athletics Track. In particular well done to Gavin Ryan who took gold in the 400 metres, to Jack Kennedy who took silver, to Azolous on winning the hammer throw and Dylan Coady who won bronze for the 110 metres hurdles.


We wish our 1st year, Junior & Senior competitors the very best this week in the inaugural Hurlball ETB County tournament that takes place in Holycross GAA Club. A similar competition proved a resounding success last year for the students of Coláiste Mhuire at the same venue and subsequently it was decided to progress it to county level for ETB schools. Go néirí le gach éinne ann, rath as saothar!


Well done to the 5th year students of Coláiste Mhuire who received their certificates following their School Business Partnership with local enterprise Dew Valley Meats. A huge thanks to all parties involved in this initiative that has been a most educational and enjoyable experience for our 5th year students who are photographed proudly displaying their well deserved certificates.


The Transition Year students of Coláiste Mhuire ventured off to Killary Adventure Centre in Delphi Connemara recently to enjoy an array of outdoors activities such as the Killary Challenge  as seen on RTÉ Ireland’s Fittest Family. Their adventure to the West was a hugely enjoyable one where the students even managed to survive for a whole day without their mobile phones!
