Sixth class stu­dents from Gaelscoil Chill Mhain­táin vis­ited Abbey CC on Thurs­day, March 24 for a sub­ject taster morn­ing. Stu­dents were given the op­por­tu­nity to try two sub­jects, Met­al­work and Home Eco­nom­ics where they made stylish skate­boards and chocolate chip muffins with the as­sis­tance of our Sixth Year stu­dents.

Both classes were con­ducted in Ir­ish and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Fo­ras na Gaeilge spoke with stu­dents and teach­ers “as Gaeilge” as part of the sec­ond stage of a competition that the col­lege has been en­tered in.

The stu­dents met the chal­lenge with en­thu­si­asm and ap­peared to en­joy the prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence. Many thanks to the teach­ers for fa­cil­i­tat­ing this event and to Ms. Goff and our School Com­ple­tion Of­fi­cer Ms. Rear­don for co–or­di­nat­ing it.


Abbey CC took part in the First Year hurl­ing blitz at the Ark­low Leisure Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day last. In to­tal six schools par­tic­i­pated. Our team recorded one win from five in our matches. How­ever, this statis­tic is some­what mis­lead­ing as Abbey CC lost three of those games by one score. The team was com­prised of Kieran Bloomfield, Richard Dick­en­son, Dy­lan Dar­gan, Daniel Nolan, Ge­orge O’Brien, John O’Brien, Aaron Dick­en­son and Christy Moore­house. Man of the tour­na­ment for Abbey CC was Kieran Bloomfield who scored in all his out­field games whilst Ge­orge O’Brien had a great game in goal in our vic­tory over De La Salle Col­lege. Well done to all in­volved.


Abbey CC se­nior rugby team trav­elled to Gorey on Wed­nes­day, March 16, to play Coláiste Bhríde, Carnew. It proved to be a very com­pet­i­tive game un­til the last twenty min­utes when Abbey CC shot into the lead. The fi­nal score was Abbey CC 44 to Colásite Bhríde 25. Congratulations to the team and we wish them luck in their up­com­ing match against Ark­low CC.


Our LCA1 stu­dents trav­elled to Glen­dalough on Thurs­day, March 24, to take part in a bond­ing ex­er­cise. The route cho­sen was ‘the Spink’ in Glen­dalough which is only three hours long but it is quite dra­matic and brings the par­tic­i­pants high up into the hills above the lakes of Glen­dalough. Al­though it was a tiring day, stu­dents and staff found it a very worth­while and en­joy­able ex­er­cise. Green Schools Competition Congratulations to Glen Mc­Carthy, a First Year stu­dent in the col­lege, who was awarded first prize in the Green Schools Competition. Glen’s win­ning logo was “Get into the green scene”.

This competition was run as part of our green flag pro­gramme and in con­junc­tion with our Par­ents As­so­ci­a­tion.


Our Leav­ing Cer­tifi­cate Art stu­dents vis­ited the Na­tional Art Gallery, Dublin on Thurs­day March 24. Stu­dents found the visit both stim­u­lat­ing and en­joy­able. The knowl­edge ac­quired will as­sist stu­dents in the his­tory of art sec­tion of the course.


On Wed­nes­day, March 23, a team con­sist­ing of our Sixth Year stu­dents played a team of teach­ing staff in a game of soc­cer at the White Gates pitch. Great skill and team spirit was shown by both teams through­out. The score was one all at the fi­nal whis­tle but the teach­ers won on penal­ties.

Well done to Jonah Graham (LCA2) who was the main or­gan­iser of this event which was in aid of the yel­low flag pro­gramme. Jonah showed great skill both on and off the pitch and is to be com­mended for his or­gan­i­sa­tional skills. Congratulations to the teach­ers who won the game. A most en­joy­able af­ter­noon was had by all.
