All-Ireland Basketball Success

Our under-16 basketball squad became All-Ireland Cup champions last Wednesday when they defeated St. Nathy’s of Ballaghaderreen by 37 points to 23 at the Tallaght Arena. Ably captained by Patrick O Gorman, the team performed with passion and skill throughout the game. The top scorer for the C.B.S. was Sean Mockler, who also picked up the Most Valuable Player award. ‘Well done’ to all involved.Under-16 ½ FootballOur footballers had a good day out on Thursday last, enjoying a comprehensive victory over Castleisland Community School in the opening round of the Buckley Cup. The C.B.S. dominated the game from beginning to end and their impressive victory sets them up for a quarter-final showdown against Ennistymon. We wish them the very best of luck.


Over eighty of our fifth year students attended an enjoyable production of Hamlet at The Source Theatre last Thursday. Performed by the Cyclone Rep theatre company, the show was an interactive mixture of key scenes and in-depth analysis of the play’s important themes and topics. The students can only benefit from viewing this very accessible production of the Shakespearean classic.

The Merchant of Venice

Last Friday, ninety of our third year students also travelled the short distance to The Source to watch a Shakespearean classic, this time The Merchant of Venice. Like their production of Hamlet, the Cylone Rep’s performance was a mixture of key scenes and analysis. The show included plenty of humour, which was essential to hold the attention of a young audience, but also explored the play’s key themes in a thorough fashion.

Cross Country Athletics

On Thursday last our athletes travelled to W.I.T. to compete in the East Munster Cross Country Championships. Our intermediate ( under-17) team, which comprised Fred Crowley, Eanna Ryan, Ben O Dwyer, Kieran Moloney, Jack Hickey and Niall Moore, finished in first place while there were also good performances from Sean Philips, Cathal McElgunn and Adam Daly in the minor (under-14) category and from Sylvester Gamza and Dylan McLoughlin in the junior (under-15) category.HurlingOur under-15 hurlers played a very worthwhile challenge match against Doon C.B.S. on Wednesday last.
