The school would like to welcome all our students back 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. State Exam Results ‘Congratulations’ to our sixth year class of 1015/16 on the excellent results they achieved in their Leaving Certificate exams. We wish them all the very best of luck in whichever field of study or employment they have chosen to follow. The school would also like to wish our fourth and fifth year pupils who sat their Junior Certificate exams last year the best of luck as they receive their results this week.
The Harty Panel began their preparations for this year’s campaign on Friday last when they played St. Coleman’s of Fermoy in a useful challenge match. They will play De la Salle in their first group game on the 12th of October while their other group game will see them face Gaelcholaiste Mhuire on October the 26th. We wish them the best of luck for their upcoming season.
Dean Ryan Hurling
Our under-16 ½ hurling panel got their season underway last Wednesday when they played Kilkenny C.B.S. in a worthwhile practice match. This game should prove to be good preparation for the panel’s first round encounter against Our Lady’s of Templemore on the 27th of this month.
Tipperary All-Ireland Glory
The school would like to congratulate the Tipperary Senior and Minor hurling panels, and in particular those involved who are either past or current pupils, on their tremendous victories on All-Ireland Hurling final day. The school had no fewer than eight past pupils on the senior panel, including the entire Tipperary full and half back lines, as well as five pupils, both past and present , on the minor panel. On a national level there are very few schools which could boast such a high level of involvement in the sport’s most prestigious flagship occasion and this involvement is an obvious testament to the strength of hurling in the school. Well done to Cathal Barrett, James Barry, Michael Cahill, Paudie Maher, Ronan Maher, Seamus Kennedy, Aidan McCormack, Steven Cahill, Killian O Dwyer, Conor Stakelum, Eoin Barry, Dillon Quirke and Bryan O Meara.
‘Congratulations’ to past pupil, Peter Ryan, on achieving his goal of representing Ireland in cycling at the Paralympic Games in Rio. The school community wishes Peter the very best of luck in his races this Wednesday and Saturday.
