The school would like to welcome back all our students after the summer break. In particular we would like to welcome our new first year students who, as I write this, have just completed their first fortnight in the C.B.S.
Junior Cert Results
Congratulations to all of our transition year and fifth year students on receiving their Junior Certificate results on Wednesday last. The dedication and hard work that they applied to their studies were duly rewarded last week when they received their results. Well done to all.
First Year Leagues
The first year hurling leagues commenced last week and will continue to run this week during lunch times at the Railway Field. The league pits teams from the different class groups against each other and is a great way to provide game time to as many pupils as possible. Dean Ryan Our under-16 hurlers have been busily preparing for their first round encounter against Charleville C.B.S., which will be played next Wednesday. Two weeks ago they played Kilkenny C.B.S. in a useful challenge match while last Wednesday saw them take on Johnstown in another worthwhile practice game.
Following on from last year’s tremendously successful season, our senior hurlers have not rested on their laurels and are already preparing for their upcoming campaign. Two weeks ago, they played a practice match against Gaelcholaiste Mhuire AG ( North Mon) while this week saw them take on De la Salle. The squad has been drawn against St. Coleman’s of Fermoy, Nenagh C.B.S. and Doon C.B.S. in the group stages of the competition. We wish them the very best of luck.
All-Ireland Minor Hurling and Football
Thurles C.B.S. was well represented in Croke Park on All-Ireland hurling final day with no fewer than six students ( three present and three past) involved with the Tipperary Minor Panel, which unfortunately lost out to Galway on the day. The school would like to acknowledge the wonderful achievement which is, not only representing one’s county, but making it all the way to an All-Ireland final. Well done to Mikey Connors, Jack Darby, Enda Heffernan, Cathal Moloney, Dillon Quirke and Jack Skehan. The school would also like to wish Mikey Connors, Jack Skehan and the entire Tipperary football panel the very best of luck as they prepare to take on Kerry in this Sunday’s All-Ireland minor football final.
