TY visit to ‘Fighting Words’ workshop

The 4.5 TY communications class took a trip to Dublin this April. We visited the Roddy Doyle writing centre called ‘Fighting Words’.  The students took part in a creative writing workshop facilitated by a small group of writers and post graduate students.
Having worked in a group everyone then had the opportunity to write their own piece and share it with the group.
It was a great experience for all and hopefully will have inspired some budding writers of the future!!

U16 Boys Basketball team qualify for All Ireland Semi Final.

The boys from Carrigaline put on an impressive show at the weekend when the u16 team travelled to Colaiste Iognaid in Salthill for the All Ireland Quarter Final tournament.
They beat teams from Galway (Cloaiste Iognaid) Letirim (CS Mohill), and Dublin (St. Vincents) in 3 very exciting and closely fought games.
They were a credit to the school, their parents and themselves, representing Carrigaline Community School wonderfully.
A massive thanks to the coaching staff, the Transition Year assistants and all the parents who travelled to Galway to support.
Best of luck to all involved in the All Ireland Semi Final in March.

U-15 Munster Football Champions

Carrigaline Community School recently bridged a 14-year gap when they won the Munster U15 Football title in Mallow.

The game was played in driving rain with a very strong wind that favoured  Mitchelstown in the first half.
Mitchelstown who were on top early and playing well built up a 0-7 to 0-2 lead by half time.

Carrigaline, now playing with the wind in the second half, were starting to gain momentum. They immediately closed the gap early on with 2 goals in quick succession.

The Game was end to end and by 54 minutes CBS had closed the gap again and the sides were level.
In a very tense and tight last few minutes Carrigaline held on and sealed their victory with an injury time point.

Final Score:  Carrigaline 3-6     CBS Mitchelstown 2-8
