Pictured  are some of the first year hockey players who travelled to Crescent College to play in the regional hockey blitz against Laurel Hill Colaiste and Secondary, Crescent and Villiers. Over 200 girls participated on the day. 45 Castletroy players took part and represented their school very well. With nearly 60 1st year girls playing hockey this year, we had enough players to form another panel of 15 players who were brought to Crescent for an afternoon with the 2nd year players to take part in an 8 aside league. Well done to all involved. Our senior and junior teams also played challenge games against Villers on their pitch on the North Circular Rd recently. The North Munster League will start after midterm break for all players. Best of luck to all the players and coaches.

The sugar craft club are busy with Halloween cupcakes, preparation for Christmas, and competitions. Students made a range of interesting Halloween themed cupcakes (3D ghosts and pumpkins, 2D pumpkins). They are now working on an Olaf figurine for a Christmas cake/cupcakes.

 

We were delighted that our First Year student Aoife Larkin competed in Decobakes ‘Cakes for Grace’ competition over mid-term. She won her age category 10-12 year olds. She baked Halloween cupcakes, decorated with spiders, pumpkins, scream, a witch’s hat, and a blood shot eye. Aoife is the first member of the sugar craft club to be a competition winner!!!

 

Students are also using their skills for their young entrepreneurs project…. Well done to sugar craft students Jack Moloney and Aoife Larkin whose cupcakes are selling really well!!

Harty Cup team see off Gaelcholáiste

Castletroy College 2-13 Gaelcholáiste Mhuire AG 0-18

Despite playing most of the second-half with 14 players, Castletroy College held off a late Gaelcholáiste Mhuire surge to secure their second set of points in a lively Harty Cup clash at Charleville yesterday.

The sides were tied at the break but Castletroy moved seven points clear by the three-quarter mark, only to be almost hauled back in a close and exciting finish. These two sides now share top spot in Group 2 but Castletroy have a game in hand.

With a clash in colours, both teams wore their county jerseys and served up a massively entertaining opening half during which the scores were deadlocked six times. But, overall, it was the performance of the Limerick minors that proved significant — Lorcan Lyons was immense at midfield, while Andrew La Touche Cosgrave and Barry Nash were always threatening up front.

It was honours even early on with Nash scoring three points from play but the switch of Eddie Gunning to centre-back helped settle the Gaelcholáiste. Along with white flags from Gunning, his bother Dan and David Braham they went ahead after 20 minutes, 0-8 to 0-5. But a goal from La Touche Cosgrave, who netted in spite of an initial save from Darragh O’Connell, swung the momentum back Castetroy’s way.

A Braham free then ensured parity at the break, 0-10 to 1-7.

Crucially, Castletroy dominated the restart, hitting 1-5 against a solitary placed ball for the Cork outfit. Again, O’Connell was unlucky to be beaten for Eoin Hourigan’s goal but credit must also be given to Lyons in the first place for a smart delivery into his forward line. Castletroy went on to lead 2-12 to 0-11 with the fourth quarter to play.

Playing deeper, Cork minor Dayne Lee came more on the ball and the tide began to turn for Gaelcholáiste Mhuire. Evan Sheehan also impressed as they landed five points between them. A Nash point alleviated the pressure but when Dan Gunning put one between them in injury time, it made for a nervous finale. However, the fightback just came up short.

Castletroy College scorers: A La Touche Cosgrave (1-4, 0-3 frees), B Nash (0-5), E Hourigan (1-0), L Lyons (0-2, frees), A Kennedy and I Coates (0-1 each).

Scorers for Gaelcholáiste Mhuire AG: D Braham (0-5, 0-3 frees, 0-1 65m), E Ó Siocháin (0-2 frees), É Ó Conaing (0-2 frees), D Ó Conaing and D Lee (0-3 each), L Ó Cochlan (0-1).

Unbreakable

markpollock2

Castletroy College are delighted to host a screening of ‘Unbreakable, The Mark Pollock Story’ on Tuesday 4th November at 1pm for all Transition Year students.

Unbroken by blindness at 22, Mark competed in ultra-endurance races across deserts, mountains, and the polar ice caps including an epic 2 month expedition race to the South Pole. He won silver and bronze rowing in the Commonwealth Games. In July 2010 the challenge chose Mark. A tragic fall left him paralysed. Now Mark is living his own lessons, a pioneer exploring the frontiers of spinal cord injury recovery.

Unbreakable will be screened later that evening, 4th November, in the Omniplex, Dooradoyle for anyone interested in attending.
