A group of first year students have been participating in the initial stage of a European funded research project entitled, Chain Reaction: A sustainable approach to Inquiry Based Science Education, The Irish Context; 2013-2016.

Representatives from 12 countries across Europe are contributing to this project, including the University of Limerick from Ireland.  Castletroy College was one of four Irish post-primary schools working with the UL team.

Our first year students participated in a number of inquiry based science lessons and were then given the opportunity to detail their experience at a national conference held in UL on Thursday 20th March.  Students from all four participating schools presented their work on posters and shared their experiences. Students also spoke to representatives from UL and from the NCCA who will go on to use the feedback from our students when designing the new junior certificate science curriculum.

Gaelic Football Tag

LIMERICK’S first ever charity tag gaelic tournament is to take place in UL.

It is a new and exciting field sport where enjoyment is the name of the game. Hybrid in nature, it combines the tagging element of tag rugby, the fielding mark of Australian rules and gaelic football’s main skill set of hand passing and kicking.

All these components come together to form a truly unique non contact team game, says one of the men behind it Cllr Michael Sheahan. He and Sean Madden, Ahane, set up the enterprise to provide a social opportunity for young people with sporting interests.

“Tag rugby has been very successful so we couldn’t see why tag gaelic couldn’t be as well. It is a simple game as well,” said Michael.

As this is the inaugural tournament men and women over 18 are welcome to take part and it is all for a very good cause – Milford Care Centre. The fun begins at noon on Saturday, March 22 at the Pavillion Sports Complex in UL.

Michael says there is a maximum panel of 12, seven on the pitch at any one time with minimum two females.

“If you are an individual or don’t have a full team register and we will organise a team for you,” said Michael, who stresses that you must register on the website www.taggaelic.com As Sean is a former u21 hurler with Limerick and plays with Ahane, he has plenty of GAA knowledge. Michael hopes the event will blossom to become a popular and regular social and sporting outlet with competitions.

He wanted to thank Castletroy College PE teacher Trish Jones and her pupils who helped with training their referees.

“They are now starting to play the game as well. It is one of the few sports that boys and girls can play together on the same team,” said Michael. They are also planning to develop second level inter colleges tag gaelic competitions.

To find out more log on to www.taggaelic.com to register for what will be another addition to the sporting capital of Ireland. Closing date for registration is three days before the event which is on Saturday, March 22.

Well done to Jack Moloney, first year, who completed his first fondant cake in the Sugar Craft Club. He stylised the cake on Mickey Mouse, for a five year old boy’s birthday. Jack had been working on this cake since January. He dyed all the fondant by hand, and used paper stencils and plastic cutters to cut the fondant shapes. This is the first complete cake produced by the sugar craft club. Well done Jack.
