Under 15 Football Champions
Our under-15 football panel made it three-in-a-row when they lifted the Cusack Cup following a comprehensive victory over Our Lady’s, Templemore in the final of the Tipperary A under-15 football final last Wednesday.. Thurles dominated the game from the outset and the result was never in doubt. There were strong performances all over the field with Luke Shanahan, Liam McCormack, Conor Horgan, Stephen Ferncombe and David Fogarty all making significant contributions to the scoreline.
Transition Year History Trip
On Wednesday last our transition year pupils travelled to Dublin for their annual history excursion. They began the day with an interesting visit to the Museum of Decorative Arts and History at Collins Barracks before getting a guided tour of Croke Park: highlights of which included the museum, visiting the dressing rooms and participating in the Skyline Tour. On their return they stopped off at Newbridge Shopping Centre for an hour’s shopping. An enjoyable day was had by all.
Soccer Fundraiser Last Tuesday our transition year pupils participated in a soccer tournament which was organised to raise funds for the Tipperary Special Olympics Club which will be competing in the National Special Olympics from the 14th to the 17th of June. The school would like to wish the best of luck to the Tipperary team and in particular to John Flynn who will be representing his county in the soccer tournament.

The CBS team that competed in the Abbey 7-A-Side hurling tournament on Friday, the 4th of May performed very well. They played eight games to reach the final where they were beaten by the hosts, Abbey CBS.
Sixth Year Graduation Mass
The class of 2018 attended their graduation mass last Thursday night in the James O Donoghue Sports Hall. Celebrated by school chaplain, Fr. Joe Walshe, the mass was an enjoyable celebration of an important milestone in the students’ lives as they prepare to say a nostalgic farewell to their school days. The theme of this year’s mass was- ‘ Is Fearr Cairde na Or’ ( Friendship is more important than gold).We would like to wish all the sixth year students the very best of luck as they prepare for their upcoming exams and wish them all the best for the future.
Last week our transition year pupils travelled to Birr Adventure Centre where they completed a variety of problem-solving and tactical exercises linked to the skills they learn as part of Project Maths. These team-building tasks require students to work out mathematical problems, calculations and measurements.
First Year Football Blitz
